Children's Music Workshop
administers every aspect of the instrumental music program including student recruitment and enrollment, music selection and distribution, weekly or bi-weekly instruction and all recital and concert performances.

Instruction is offered before school, during the school day and after school - depending on the needs of each individual school.

Top school administrators all agree - outsourcing is an excellent way for schools to provide students with a high quality music program in financially challenging times.

And often the first casualties to budget cuts are music programs.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. By outsourcing music instruction, many schools are saving money and resources while still offering students a well-rounded education that includes music.

Children’s Music Workshop is the company more Los Angeles area public and private schools turn to for quality, on-site music instruction.

Founded nearly thirty years ago by Larry Newman, CMW presently coordinates music programs in more than two dozen of the top Los Angeles area public and private schools. And CMW teachers are among the finest music educators to be found anywhere in the country.

Children’s Music Workshop contributes more than $25,000 each year in scholarship assistance and free instrument rentals to economically-disadvantaged students in our local public schools.

In addition to our gifts, we also partner with a number of non-profit organizations - raising ten of thousands of dollars to directly fund music programs in the LAUSD (Los Angeles Unified School District) elementary schools where district funding has been cut or is non-existent.

Experts have proven that music education not only enhances a child's academic performance in math and science, it also engenders teamwork, communication and other social skills that are critical to success as an adult.

And a long list of facts and figures show music's positive impact on children and society at large — including higher SATs, higher IQs and lower dropout rates.

It is our goal to help put music education back where it belongs — in the curricula of our public and private schools — by providing a high quality, integrated, flexible and affordable music education program for all students.
