As part of the State Farm 2012 “Sounds of mi Vecindario” campaign, State Farm brings back “Celebrity Music Teacher for a Day” in partnership with Latino singer/songwriter, Gustavo Galindo who participated in last year’s campaign as well.This year the program arrived to various markets throughout the country, including Los Angeles and Miami. The lesson plan includes an overview of Galindo’s songwriting process, key learning’s about "making it" in the music industry, and a live acoustic performance.
Working hand-in-hand with the schools’ music teachers, Galindo’s visits have been structured to be entertaining and motivating, while encouraging students to drive safely and stay in school. At the end of his performance, students will have the opportunity to ask questions and enjoy an autograph signing and photo session with Galindo.
"I am honored to rejoin State Farm in their 'Celebrity Music Teacher for a Day' initiative and have the opportunity to meet, and positively influence our young artists," said Galindo. "I was certainly inspired by so much talent among our high school music students around the country when I visited with them last year. I can only look forward this year to once again working alongside State Farm agents to continue educating a new group of students."
The next session in Los Angeles is scheduled for Friday, October 19, 2012 at Abraham Lincoln High School.
