Hope Institute of Music

Established in 2001 with support from the South Park Neighborhood Center, the social service provider for the 1010 Development Group's affordable housing developments, we at Hope Institute of Music in L.A. have provided early childhood music training in vocal and instruments, continually exploring innovative ways to improve children's sensitivity and self esteem through the art of music.

In a city of such cultural diversity as Los Angeles, we hope our young citizens will take roots in the richness of the cultural values in which we all co-exist. This is why we launched "The LA Children's Music Festival" in 2005 on the campus of USC where over 800 children and adults came together to celebrate their unique heritages and love for music, further assuring us that this festival is vital to the community.
