Enriching Lives through Music

ELM is an El Sistema-inspired program sparking passion and community engagement through a deep connection to music. Our free and intensive music programs serve 120 students from the Latino immigrant Canal neighborhood of San Rafael, California. Our students work with top-notch teachers, mentors, and musicians to progress from a tune on the recorder to a symphony, salsa or samba on a classical instrument. We invite you to share the joy, hard work, and wonder
of seeding and nurturing a lifelong love of music.
