Enriching Lives through Music


ELM is a tuition-free youth music program for primarily first-generation Latinx students from the Canal neighborhood of San Rafael that promotes social change through the ambitious pursuit of musical excellence. While music excellence will always be at the heart of ELM, we recognize the importance of creating additional pillars to support our students’ growth, success, and opportunities. These additional pillars include: Academic Achievement, Social and Emotional Well Being, and Family and Community Engagement. By supporting our students in these three additional areas, we will be in an excellent position to fulfill our promise to our students, the opportunity to pursue their dreams.
