2012-13 MI Sponsored Classes at The Grammy Museum for LAUSD Students Announced!

The Musicians Foundation, Musicians Institute (MI) and The Grammy Museum are proud to present the 2012-2013 series of MI-sponsored Grammy Museum Music Education classes for LA Unified School District high school students in the Museum’s intimate Clive Davis Theater.

The Grammy Museum has become an important gateway for supporting and preserving music education as a major sponsor of school tours and music classes for LA area middle and high school students who are suffering from severe cuts in arts education in their own school’s budget.

During 2012-13, the MI-sponsored classes are taught exclusively by MI’s world-class faculty, and MI will be the Museum’s sole Education Class sponsor for the months of October and April, with a focus on Music and Technology.

This unique hands-on MI course series (now in its 4th year), has inspired and delighted thousands of high school students while imparting valuable knowledge and experience that are at the heart of making, understanding and appreciating both music and the music industry.  Some classes may be available to the public, contact The Grammy Museum directly for more details.

Musicians Institute has been a major sponsor of The Grammy Museum since it’s inception in 2008.
