The Orchestra Place


Music should be part of every school’s core curriculum. We partner with schools in the greater Los Angeles area to make this possible when music is not available through the district or out of reach of a school’s budget.

We believe in the power of music education

It takes patience, grit, memory, and focus to learn a new instrument— the same qualities needed to excel in school and life. By learning to play an instrument and participating in school orchestras, our students develop these skills early, learn teamwork, and build pride and confidence in themselves.
