The Music Center

Hey, LA Tenth District PTSA: Your schools could be eligible for a grant toward an arts assembly from The Music Center!

Music Center On Tour brings the immediacy of live performance to schools across Los Angeles County. These performances reflect and celebrate the finest artistic contributions of the world’s cultures – from the colorful regional dances of Mexico to the pulsating rhythms of Brazil; from the exquisite music of the Middle East to the golden harmonies of 20th Century America.


Assemblies include written teacher preparation materials that contain background information on the artist and the specific performance as well as activities for the classroom and connections to multiple curricular areas.Music Center on Tour Brochure
Funding of up to $750 is available for Los Angeles County public schools. The two criteria to be eligible are:
  • Your school must have at least 40 percent Free/Reduced Lunch Price Program eligible students.
  • Your school has not had a Music Center on Tour performance within the last five years. Schools that haven’t previously hosted a performance from The Music Center also are eligible.

Interested PTA leaders are encouraged to contact The Music Center to determine eligibility. The funding is limited and will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis so a prompt reply is crucial. For more information, contact (213) 972-4310 or

A $50 administrative fee will be assessed for performances under the $750 amount. This opportunity is only available to public schools in the First, Tenth, Thirty-First, Thirty-Third and Thirty-Fourth PTA districts. The funds must be used in the 2016-17 school year. Funding is made possible by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.

Go to Music Center on Tour for additional information.
