The  Mission of Santa Monica Bay Music Foundation is through outreach, identify, enable, and provide rigorous, high-quality music instruction that nurtures and encourages a pathway to professional learning and performance opportunities for children and youth of all socioeconomic background living in the Los Angeles’ Westside community.


Our vision is to be widely recognized as the preeminent music school on Los Angeles’ Westside where all children and youth, with aspiration to pursue music studies in college and career, are constantly improving and taking advantage of top performance opportunities in their community, participating in music workshops with top instructors, and gaining admittance to leading performing arts schools, colleges and companies. 


  • We believe in developing an infrastructure that supports, empowers, and values our Community and Mission.
  • We believe in sharing and inspiring through outreach¬†with audiences who have little or no exposure to instrumental music making, with the belief that the experience will enrichen the lives of all involved.
