Notes from our Executive Director

Happy summer everyone!

As I hope you’re enjoying these sultry dog days of summer, I wanted to share a quick update on some of our latest initiatives and projects that will launch in the next few months.

It’s our 10th anniversary, and every week (on these very blog pages) we’re featuring profiles of our fantastic Board of Directors.  I invite you to scroll thru our previous posts and check it out!

Looking ahead to September of this year, we’ll be awarding $70,000 in scholarships to the students at Musicians Institute, via 40 unique scholarship opportunities (including our annual flagship Stanley Clarke Scholarship).

We’ve just finalized our fantastic (co-sponsored) series of 10 music-specific class titles for LAUSD high school students held at The Grammy Museum, running from November thru May 2015.



We’re also very excited that our non-profit partner unite4:good (an amazing, altruistic organization), has shot a promo video highlighting the work of The Musicians Foundation.

As we grow, we are continuing to form extremely beneficial relationships with other non-profits like: unite4:good, Little Kids Rock, The Grammy Museum, The Recording Academy, and our local Hollywood-area arts organizations.

Have a look at our new video, and check out our unite4:good page, where this video will be featured:

Won’t you consider making a tax-deductible donation today?

Let’s serve up more music, and give it to more kids! 


Our Music is Our Future


As 2011 comes to a close, I am reminded daily of all the ways that the students of Musicians Institute rely on the support of those who understand the power of music education and the important role it plays in our lives.

Private support for our students from alumni donations, sponsored music industry scholarships and friends like you helps to make professional, college level music education possible for many of our students.

If you haven’t yet made a contribution to our scholarship fund, I invite you to join us by making a tax-deductible donation to the Musicians Institute Student Scholarship fund administered by The Musicians Foundation.

Together, we can accomplish the extraordinary, and make a lasting investment in our future, our culture, and ourselves.
