NAMM Foundation’s Museum of Making Music

Jim Fahey adds a unique twist to many of the tours he provides as a docent for the NAMM Foundation’s Museum of Making Music. Growing up in the 1960s, Jim understands the impact music has on social issues. As a result of this, sociology and the impact of  music on culture has been a part of his tours at the museum. In addition to being a docent, Jim is often found tuning the instruments in the museum’s interactive area and answering visitor questions about the displays and artifacts. For his dedication to the museum, Jim was given the Volunteer of the Year Award in 2017!
