Music Education Programs
To continue supporting the future Latin music makers and our communities, the Latin GRAMMY Cultural Foundation executes several music education programs annually in middle and high schools, universities, and music education institutions throughout the United States and Ibero-America:
Latin GRAMMY In The Schools™ is an educational program that informs and connects music students with professionals in the Latin music industry and supports educational music departments that have financial limitations. The Foundation invites artists, professional musicians, and sound engineers to visit middle and high schools, universities, or music education institutions to share their personal stories and experiences with students that highlight the effort it takes to overcome career obstacles. The goal is for students to learn to optimize the educational opportunities presented to them, giving them an advantage and strong academic preparation to be able to compete in the music industry. The Foundation has donated nearly $700,000 in musical instruments to schools throughout the United States and Ibero-America in support of their music education programs.
Previous artists who have participated in the program include:
Ángela Aguilar, David Bisbal, Marilina Bertoldi, Miguel Bosé, Calle 13, Pedro Capó, Camilo, Chino & Nacho, Chiquis, Luis Coronel, Silvestre Dangond, Joss Favela, Fonseca, Luis Fonsi, Becky G, Karol G, Kany García, Gente de Zona, Leslie Grace, Carlos Jean, Jesse & Joy, Natalia Lafourcade, Poncho Lizárraga, Lin-Manuel Miranda Claudia Montero, Ednita Nazario, Christian Nodal, Ángel "Cucco" Peña, Prince Royce, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Olga Tañón, Thalía, Christian Serratos, Diego Torres, Carlos Vives, Wisin, and Sebastián Yatra.
Latin GRAMMY® Emerging Latinas demonstrates our commitment to increasing access to musical education and exposure to careers in music for women, and pledges to help close the gender gap within the industry. During the 2020-21 season, four of the top scholarships were awarded to women, which represents 64% ($531,000) of the total scholarship amount. The program seeks to further advance opportunities for women by providing yearlong mentoring with female Latin artists and executives in the industry.
