The LA Phil’s Learning programs provide unique, high quality opportunities for music and music making each year. YOLA (Youth Orchestra Los Angeles) is Dudamel’s signature Learning initiative. The program currently serves more than 1,300 young musicians across four sites, providing them with free instruments, intensive music instruction, academic support, and leadership training. This includes the development of a brand new center, the Beckmen YOLA Center, located in Inglewood, CA which will offer free music instruction and to start making music with young people from Inglewood and the communities surrounding it.
