The NAMM Foundation supports teachers, parents and community leaders with resources and programs to advance music making for all.


Community Spotlight

It is a well known fact that outstanding music programs lead to increased student performance in the classroom, higher attendance rates, increased self-esteem as well as improved behavior over schools without quality music programs. The Brownsville Independent School District and the BISD Department of Fine Arts are committed to providing the best possible fine arts experiences for their students to enrich their lives and help them reach their potential.
