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 topics you care about, taught by industry leaders, all in one place.

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.

Being at NAMM opened up a whole new world for me. I was connected with resources that I didn't even realize existed. Also, being able to interact with industry people gave me insight into their vision and allowed me to give my input as well. As far as my professional goals; the program introduced me to ideas in music education that will enhance my classroom and after school programs.
