The Port of Los Angeles is a landlord seaport, covering 7500 acres of land and water, with more than 300 leaseholders including the Port’s visitor-serving LA Waterfront which comprises over 400 acres and 8 miles of waterfront spanning the communities of San Pedro and Wilmington. The Port of Los Angeles is committed to creating and improving public access to the water’s edge through continual investment in word-class infrastructure that will activate the LA Waterfront and attract private investment on port property and in the adjacent communities of San Pedro and Wilmington.

Grand Vision Foundation - Meet the Music

Meet the Music

Grand Vision’s in-school music program, Meet the Music, began in 2009. It has grown into a model education program, annually serving over 1,800 fourth and fifth graders in San Pedro and Wilmington with an innovative sequential 18-month curriculum.

Fourth graders receive the Roots of Music Program (RoMP) which teaches foundational music concepts through global music traditions. Fifth graders receive Recorders-in-Schools, a full school year of weekly instrumental training. This two-year approach ensures that students gain real musical skills as well as a developing sense of cultural literacy that they can take with them into middle school and beyond.

Dr. Tony Rasmussen, Director of Music Education for Grand Vision Foundation

Since 2019, Dr. Rasmussen has directed Grand Vision’s Meet the Music program, overseeing the work of Grand Vision’s teaching artists, maintaining and building relationships with the organization’s partner schools, and most recently, teaching “Roots of Music,” the fourth grade section of the program.

Dr. Rasmussen is a musician and educator with a PhD in ethnomusicology and an MFA in music composition. He is a prolific researcher in the field of Latin American music and cultural studies. He has served as Visiting Assistant Professor of Ethnomusicology at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) and has published in peer-reviewed journals such as Latin American Perspectives and Women & Music: A Journal of Gender and Culture.

For younger students, he has taught music curriculum through Riverside elementary STEAM workshops; at UCLA’s middle school Summer Discovery program; and with After-School All-Stars, the nationwide program for middle and high school aspiring rock musicians. A musician himself, Dr. Rasmussen has written and recorded contemporary music and performed with traditional mariachi, Andean, and Persian ensembles.
