SBMA Offers Support to

Music Teachers

The South Bay Music Association launched the mini-grant program during the 2020-21 school year to support teachers with pandemic related expenses.

All grant requests are submitted to and approved by the SBMA Board and Mini-grant committee. Support is provided to all six music teachers in the District, at every institution and for every music class, including band, strings and choir. In addition, support is made available to music teachers from around the entire South Bay area of Los Angeles. SBMA is proud to provide this support and looks forward to opening more grants in the future.

The arts, and especially music, are a necessity to a well-rounded education. This is not only because music helps create better students and employees, but also because the human soul depends on emotional and artistic expression to balance its existence. Now is the time for dreamers, or ‘artistic types,’ to help with innovative ways to make our schools operate and provide the level of opportunity the students deserve.

It takes a village for this to succeed, and you are our village. Any amount will help us continue this initiative. To make a tax-deductible donation today use the form on this page, or send a check, made out to SBMA, to 501 California, El Segundo, CA 90245.
