Message From Founder & Artistic Director

Dear SOL-LA Community,

Now in our tenth year, SOL-LA Music Academy, a non-profit 501 (c) (3) performing arts community school, provides comprehensive music and performing arts education from early childhood through adults throughout Los Angeles.

Through individual lessons and group classes in instrumental music, voice, music theory, ensemble classes, chamber music, workshops and master classes with guest artists; and our outreach and school partnership programs, SOL-LA students are exposed to different genres of music and vibrant cultures that are pertinent to today’s globally connected youth, and make music relevant to their lives.

SOL-LA’s teaching artists are leaders in pedagogy and professional musicians who are deeply committed to the concept that music education is a fundamental right and an essential foundation for intellectual, spiritual and emotional growth.

With your participation and support, SOL-LA has become a collaborative resource in the community, helping to build strong partnerships among schools, teachers, students and families, artists, leaders and community members and organizations.

SOL-LA continues its journey on one of the most optimistic endeavors possible: learning, making and sharing music with one another.

You are an integral part of what makes SOL-LA so unique and wonderful, and we are continually grateful to be a part of this community of artists and families.

Margaret Lysy
Founder & Artistic Director, SOL-LA Music Academy
