Empowering youth through musical communities



Global Arts cultivates a nurturing learning community for youth in underserved neighborhoods, centered around music, student voice, and personal development.

We Believe In

We believe that music can help provide life-long skills such as respect, communication, and responsibility. We believe that it provides students with the opportunity to discover their own voice and realize its importance. 

What We Do

We provide free after-school music classes to students in the Pico Union Neighborhood of Los Angeles. Our classes consist of ukulele, violin, viola, flute, clarinet, trumpet, and trombone.


Global Arts values and offers support to educators, students, and their families so that they may collectively and positively change their local and global communities through music.

I admire my teachers so much! I look up to them not only as music teachers, but also as people. They were there for me at my best & worst times, being there to help me with both my musical & personal struggles. I could turn to them no matter what. I genuinely believe that I would not be the person and musician I am now if I did not have them in my life.
