NAMM Foundation Awards Grant to GAMA
The NAMM Foundation allocated $445,000 in funding to support innovative community-based music learning programs that expand access to active music making and its many benefits.
The new grants, while only a small portion of NAMM’s overall annual multimillion-dollar-reinvestment into the music products industry, help organizations operate programs designed to increase interest and participation in making music among teachers, seniors, college students and school-aged children. Since 1994, the NAMM Foundation has supported worthy U.S. and international music-making programs with more than 13.7 million dollars in grant-making support.
GAMA trains school music educators to start or enhance classroom guitar programs through its Teaching Guitar Workshops. To date, more than 3,000 school music educators have studied at Teaching Guitar Workshops across the U.S. and Canada. Over 500,000 children have received guitar instruction because of the program.
