The NAMM Foundation provides a vital bridge between the trade side of the music industry and those of us working within the broad domain of music education. it was clear from this year's [2017] show that this intrinsic relationship is being strengthened. The 2017 NAMM Show provided opportunities to have wider conversations with potential collaborators.

The Music Educator Showcase is a goldmine of valuable information for any music educator attending The NAMM Show. Each company that presents is able to share what tools and resources are immediately available for educators to use in their programs. Having the opportunity to present at the showcase has allowed me to meet many great music educators, nonprofits and other contacts that share the mission of providing music for every child.
