Create Now is proud to be a participant in the 2014 Annenberg Alchemy+ program.

While Hollywood is one of the richest and most glamorous cities in the world, only 50% of the children there graduate from high school. Create Now has initiated the first of two 12-session Guitar Workshops at Ramona Elementary School in Hollywood on January 27th.

Thanks to our partner Youth Policy Institute, through the "Los Angeles Promise Neighborhood" initiative.

Megan Hook is teaching 15 sixth-grade children fundamental chords in order to play some great songs. The second class will begin on March 10th with 15 new kids. There are waiting lists for both of these workshops, because the youth love it.

All the kids are excited about the culminating events. They will get to visit the Create Now Recording Studio where they will have the chance to record their music.

Tommy, age 10 remarked, "I like when we play guitar and sing together as a class. The teacher is very helpful."

Create Now is honored to have been selected as a 2013 Top-Rated Education Nonprofit by Guidestar and Great Nonprofits.

LA County Arts Council LogoCreate Now is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
