ELM inspires youth to envision and achieve excellence in all facets of their lives through music education and performance.
ELM provides group and individual music education for youth in San Rafael's Canal neighborhood. All students start on the soprano recorder, chorus, and Orff mallet instruments through which they learn ear training, music theory, and music-reading skills. After students demonstrate basic music competence and commitment, they are offered opportunities to transition to other instruments. Students have multiple ensemble and performance opportunities. Family participation and community partnerships are key to ELM's success.
ELM envisions a center of musical excellence in which classical music and other music traditions are shared and celebrated.
