We Los Angeles Music Teachers enter Spring of 2017 with great enthusiasm.  Our job is to  bring the magical gift of music to our children.  Our task is to nourish and cultivate music in our schools so that the Los Angeles children have the opportunity to grow in their  general music, choral and instrumental music education and perhaps carry it through the rest of their lives.  There is now scientific evidence that music students make better math and science students and have better spacial intelligence and problem solving minds than those students who are not educated in music.

ATTENTION: Elementary Music Teachers, Classroom Teachers and Parents
