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.
