2013-14 MI & MF Sponsored Classes @The Grammy Museum for LAUSD Students Announced


The Grammy Museum at LA LIve

 The Musicians Foundation, Musicians Institute (MI) and The Grammy Museum are proud to present the 2013-2014 series of co-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 2013-14, the classes are taught exclusively by MI’s world-class faculty, and MI will be the Museum’s sole Education Class sponsor for the month of March, with a focus on Music and Technology.

This unique hands-on MI course series (now in its 5th 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.  All classes start at 11am.

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