Support and Education for Local Music and Arts Coachella Valley chapter 1, provides you with a revolutionary way to access education in music and arts. The main purpose of the S.E.L.M.A. organization is to create careers that support and preserve cultural integrity by providing a localized showcase system of the education of local music and arts.

Our community is brimming with talented individuals and groups that deserve our support. We hope that as we continue to grow to serve you that a desire to serve your community in return manifests in your experience.

There are many ways to assist in the growth of the S.E.L.M.A. organization. This week, we would like to highlight S.E.L.M.A. supporter Keith Blum ( This third dimension muralist has dedicated his time and sacrificed his commissioned income to invest his talent in a mural that will go up at the Learning Tree Palm Desert (

This mural offers the Learning Tree Center students with a blacktop playground that provokes not only the imagination but also familiarizes them with our world and what we as a people, have created. As Americans, it is imperative that we stand together for what we believe in. The S.E.L.M.A. organization is here to provide opportunity for our options to stand together to strengthen. This project passionately represents that notion.


As we all know there is a cost to anything substantial. Whether what you are offering is tangible or not, the case stands that paint, brushes and $1500 must be acquired in order to complete each panel of this project. Also, “Seekers of Community Support” for the project are overwhelmingly valuable, as that it takes the agreement of a group to make a true change in anything.

We are reaching out to our Coachella Valley community in the hopes that local business people will see the long term value in supporting the implementation of this mural at the Learning Tree Center Palm Desert. By cooperating with these businesses we will be able to advertise and promote for their business as we grow, and we will be able to pay our respects by inserting their business name or logo onto the mural wall itself, never to be removed.
