The primary mission of the LACM Foundation is to provide financial assistance to aspiring musicians in the form of scholarship funding toward the pursuit of a college degree in music, as well as to offer support of organizations working to develop and educate young musicians as they grow toward the age of college entrance. It is the belief of the organization that all who wish to pursue the study of music should have the access, opportunity and financial ability to do so regardless of socioeconomic background. The LACM Foundation also specializes in providing support in the form of goods and services, making music programs and equipment available to those who need assistance and resources.



Los Angeles College of Music and LACM Foundation join together to present an exciting interview series titled “Let’s Talk Music”, featuring high profile music industry guests interviewed by members of the LACM community. Each guest who is invited to be featured is honored with the donation of an annual scholarship in the amount of $6,000 in their name, donated by Los Angeles College of Music to the LACM Foundation to be distributed to a deserving student once per academic year.

The intent of this interview series is to provide LACM students, alumni, faculty, staff and the general public with access to an intimate and informative discussion outlining the successes, history and current works of an accomplished music industry veteran. This is a rare moment to see “behind the scenes” of the career trajectory of a prominent and influential artist, songwriter, musician, producer or music industry influencer. It is a night of learning, casual conversation “living room style”, and a celebration of the art, life and music of our guest.



LACM Gives Back is an extension of Los Angeles College of Music Career Services that initiates opportunities for LACM students and alumni to be involved in serving their community. Gives Back partners with local Pasadena organizations, as well as groups in the greater Los Angeles area. Serving the community and those in need can be a powerful and exciting way to share your talents.

The Newly formed LACM Foundation is excited to support endeavors that promote the value of music. In our first year, we plan to partner with other institutions which continue to develop music education. We are excited to build new pathways for music education because believe that all who seek to learn and develop a career in music should have the opportunity.
