The purpose of the LACESMA Music Scholarships (Los Angeles City Elementary School Music Association scholarships) is to
 provide private instruction for deserving pupils who show evidence of talent and demonstrate unusual ability in performance.  The annual event is open all students in any of LAUSD’s five hundred elementary schools. 

LACESMA is an organization of elementary music educators, classroom teachers, school administrators, parents and community members who promote and support music education in the Los Angeles Unified Schools.  LACESMA provides music scholarships for LAUSD elementary instrumental music students and supports music festivals and other performance opportunities for LAUSD elementary students.  The organization also provides professional development for music educators and advocacy resources for arts education.

 About Our Scholarship Program

Separate from the LACESMA music scholarship program mentioned above, Children’s Music Workshop contributes more than $50,000 a year for Los Angeles city elementary school music scholarships and free instrument rentals to benefit economically-disadvantaged students in the LAUSD (Los Angeles Unified School District). In addition to our gifts, we also partner with a number of local businesses and non-profit organizations – raising additional tens of thousands of dollars to directly fund music programs in area elementary schools where LAUSD music funding has been cut or is non-existent.
