Los Angeles City Elementary Schools Music Association


Our mission:

Cultivating and nourishing children through music in Los Angeles public schools.

On July 22nd, 2017 members of LACESMA were informed that our dear colleague, Patrick Ridolfi had passed away. He will be sorely missed. He was a dynamic, giving, talented elementary music teacher who had a transforming way of teaching music to children. He was also an extremely gifted singer. He will be sorely missed. We offer his wife and sons and the entire Ridolfi family our condolences.
