Joined with Grammy-Winning music producer Sebastian Krys, and veteran music educator Sue Edwards, KORG accepted Education Through Music-Los Angeles’s Shining Star Award at their annual gala on December 4.

“Although ETMLA has been honoring individuals with the prestigious Shining Star Award for 13 years, they have never recognized a business or manufacturer before,” says Tiffany Stalker, senior manager of Education at KORG USA, Inc. “This was a very special evening and because so many influential decision makers were there and excited about this new technology option, I anticipate our efforts will grow with this group to make a greater impact in areas where we really couldn’t have been before.”

ETM-LA partners with inner-city schools to provide music as a core subject for all children, and utilizes music education as a catalyst to improve academic achievement, motivation for school and self-confidence. KORG has had a long standing relationship with the organization by building top-notch music technology labs in the New York area, and has recently started working with the Los Angeles organization to help provide a variety of gear to further enhance the importance of music programs in schools in California.
