About Us

Longy offers the first, one-year accredited degree program in the world inspired by El Sistema, the Venezuelan program that is changing the lives of children in underserved communities through intensive music instruction.

The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program was developed with the LA Phil to establish a hands-on approach to learning. Now in partnership with the Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) and Street Symphony, you will “learn by doing” by working in the surrounding underserved neighborhoods of the Rampart District of Los Angeles. Within weeks you will gain new skills by being mentored in community music and El Sistema-inspired programs, by teaching in urban public schools throughout Southern California, and by supporting communities who experience homelessness such as Skid Row.

The MAT in Music offers a unique and powerful graduate study in performance, music pedagogy, and social justice, as well as access to MAT faculty, including prominent Los Angeles musicians and leading scholars in music and education. We are looking for inspired artists from all musical backgrounds—classical, pop, world, folk, jazz, instrumental, vocal, conducting, and more.
