The Young Musicians Foundation’s (YMF) mission is to empower under-served, frequently marginalized students to find creativity, connection and joy through music, which we’ve been doing since 1955. YMF’s Teaching Artists are at the heart of our organization’s mission, providing tuition-free weekly music instruction to students and communities. Our accessible and responsive approach to music instruction reaches students ages 4 to adult across Los Angeles through partnerships with under-resourced schools and community programs covering a 195-square-mile area in greater Los Angeles.
The AMPLIFY WiSE (Women in Sound Engineering) program is a unique partnership program between YMF and the Mayor’s Office WiSTEM initiative designed to support women-identifying high-school aged youth on a path towards careers that involve sound engineering and music production.
Location: As of March 16th, 2020 and until further notice all YMF programming will be conducted via remote-learning through either video-based instruction, and/or through the implementation of asynchronous materials. If and when we are given the opportunity to resume in-person programming, on-site in-person instruction may resume. This will be on a site-by-site basis, pending guidance from qualified healthcare professionals, the LA county Department of Public Health, school and site partners, and internal YMF staff.
Compensation: $60 per hour – In-Person or Video/Remote based instruction, $20 per hour for professional development/planning, $35 per hour for concerts and/or program events as required.
Qualifications and Skills:
We highly value a diverse team and an equitable work environment where every member of our team is set up to thrive.

We review our policies and practices for equity frequently.
