LA MUSIC FESTIVAL

The TAPS LA MUSIC FESTIVAL  brings communities together through live music while enhancing the lives of young musicians in the process.

 

10 collegiate or post-collegiate participants will apprentice with professional musicians as they perform chamber music, take lessons, attend masterclasses, and participate in community outreach activities together, coaching local students in the Los Angeles area who are receiving music instruction for the first time.

AUGUST 1-14, 2021

All accepted in-person participants will receive free tuition!
