The Young Musicians Foundation
Since our founding in 1955, the Young Musicians Foundation has striven to provide access to high-quality musical education to youth, regardless of economic or cultural background.
Through our Teaching Artist Program (TAP), we provide tuition-free instruction to over 1,500 students in 13 schools and sites in greater Los Angeles.
For musicians with professional aspirations, we offer the Debut Chamber Orchestra (DCO). Notable alumni such as André Previn and Michael Tilson Thomas have helped establish DCO’s reputation as one of the premier training orchestras in the U.S.
