THE GRAMMY MUSEUM®: Devoted to exploring and celebrating music

The Mike Curb Music Mentoring Program 

With help from some of the biggest talent in the music industry, The GRAMMY Museum and Mike Curb have created a music mentoring program for approximately 25 Los Angeles area students each year, helping them establish relationships, increase self-esteem, develop leadership skills and grow their passion for music while offering them support long after they graduate the program. Mentees are paired with musicians, music executives and other leading industry professionals based on the mentees interests and potential career goals. The program consists of large group activities at the GRAMMY Museum and surrounding venues as well as one-on-one instruction between the individual mentor and mentee. Mentees are expected to maintain good academic standing or show constant improvement in order to remain in the program. 

Program Goals

  • Prepare youth to pursue post-secondary education and professional careers in the music industry
  • Increase access to music programs in underprivileged communities
  • Develop a program that teaches both leadership and life skills
  • Create a safe environment for students to express themselves
  • Increase self worth by offering a program that helps cultivate self-esteem

GRAMMY Museum Student Leadership Council

Are you a student with leadership potential who is passionate about music? The GRAMMY Museum's Student Leadership Council will play an integral role in the educational programming of the Museum. The purpose of the Student Leadership Council is to provide youth a voice in all aspects of museum programs. Students will help spread the word about the GRAMMY Museum and be a walking example of how music engages and empowers students. Leadership, public speaking and event production are just a few of the skills students will gain through their involvement. Additionally, students will start a youth-driven online music magazine, providing them with hands-on editorial experience and an opportunity to build their resume.
