Building Musical and Cultural Literacy

Grand Vision’s Meet the Music (MTM) programs for students ensure equitable access to the arts through partnerships with local elementary schools who lack music education. Through inspirational live music concerts and sequential standards-based instruction with trained teaching artists, Meet the Music builds the foundation and inspiration students need to make and enjoy music for the rest of their lives, while bringing teachers essential tools for integrating arts learning into the classroom.

Meet the Music’s program pipeline includes RoMP (Roots of Music Program) for 4th grade, Recorders in Schools for 5th grade, and the LA Opera Partnership for 4th and 5th grade. Meet the Music’s eight partner LAUSD schools in San Pedro and Wilmington include Barton Hill Elementary, Broad Ave. Elementary, Cabrillo Ave. Elementary, Gulf Ave. Elementary, Hawaiian Ave. Elementary, Harry Bridges Span School, Leland Street Elementary, and Pt. Fermin Marine and Science Magnet.
