Our Teaching Artists
The Music Center brings world-class artists into classrooms all over Los Angeles County through a range of innovative education programs. Nationally, The Music Center is not only a premier performing arts center, but a leader in the arts education field, vigorously committed to advancing arts learning in the community's pre-K through 12 schools.
A distinguished professional teaching artist faculty is at the core of The Music Center's approach to arts education. Our teaching artist faculty undergo a rigorous selection and training process before interacting with students and teachers. Teaching artists work at the intersection of artistry and education by using their expertise, creativity, and passion to provide distinctive arts learning experiences for students and teachers.
The Music Center's teaching artist faculty includes nearly 40 teaching artists in five disciplines: dance, music, theatre, visual and media arts. Classroom teachers observe Music Center artists working with their students and learn how they can continue teaching the arts in their own curriculum.
