Sound Art L.A. provides a musical outlet for children desperate for self-expression. They engage children of all ages in music education, giving them access to the tools of popular music and the guidance of professional musicians as instructors. With Sound Art, students awaken creativity, discover their voices and experience success. Sound Art is unique in that it does not have a fixed location. The instructors travel to the sites they serve and engage neighborhoods instead of requiring students to come to them. The result is a program that is mobile, flexible and part of the community. The organization offers programs at all grade levels, during and after school, at community centers, juvenile detention centers and camps.
