GRAMMY®-nominated Artist Gustavo Galindo is "Celebrity Music Teacher for a Day"
Also, as part of the year-round music campaign, "Sounds of mi Vecindario", Galindo will conduct special appearances in April's Latin Billboard Music Awards, summer's Premios Juventud and the Mexican Billboard Awards in the fall. The "Celebrity Music Teacher for a Day" program will continue in various markets throughout the country, including Los Angeles and Miami, surrounding the additional award shows through the year.
"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."
For the second time around serving as the program's spokesman, Galindo, along with State Farm agents, will have the opportunity to visit various predominantly Hispanic high schools throughout the U.S. The lesson plan includes an overview of Galindo's song-writing process, key learnings 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.
"It is fundamental for State Farm to continue its commitment of educating our youth by increasing teen-driver safety, and education awareness, and establishing an effective line of communication with parents, teachers and future drivers," said Pam El, Marketing Vice President for State Farm. "As this program aligns with our promise to build safer, stronger, and better educated communities, we are grateful to the participating schools that have granted us the opportunity to motivate their students to be more responsible and to not lose sight of their dreams."

About Gustavo Galindo
Gustavo Galindo's music is a reflection of his life's journey between two countries and two cultures. Born in Mexico City in the early 1980s, his childhood included several years living in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, followed by a period living with his cousins in Mexico City, and then in Sacramento. Latin Grammy®-nominated Galindo majored in International Relations and his music education began as a child, with his father. Not restricted by language or genre, Gustavo's sound is a combination of traditional and contemporary Mexican and American styles. Gustavo writes and performs both in English and Spanish. Galindo's 2011 debut album "Entre La Ciudad y El Mar" climbed the Billboard Latin charts, debuted as the #1 Latin Top Pop album on iTunes Latino and was nominated for a Grammy in 2012 under The Best Latin Album category.
