Los Angeles

The HEART of the Music Industry


Los Angeles is the world’s hub for the entertainment industry. It is the place where rap was invented, stars were born and your favorite movie was created. With iconic landmarks such as the Chinese Theatre, Hollywood Boulevard, Capitol Records, Warner Brothers, Universal Studios and more, there is no doubt that Los Angeles is an exciting place to cultivate music and your own artistry.

LACM is located within Pasadena which is easily accessible by car, bus or train. The Old Town Pasadena district is full of great restaurants and shops in historic buildings. It is the home of the Make Music Pasadena Festival, Tournament of Roses annual parade and the Rose Bowl game. LACM students are always finding new places to explore and gig within our wider community and we invite you to come experience our growing presence in Los Angeles.
