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


Community Spotlight

Being in music and in a leadership position, it’s so much easier to talk to people. There’s something about playing an instrument that just makes you a better person.

Best Communities for Music Education

Now in its 22nd year, The NAMM Foundation will continue the Best Communities for Music Education program, although as a revised “special edition” to reflect current realities.  We want this year to reflect the ongoing commitment of your community to support music education as a vital part of a well-rounded education for all children.  Awards will also recognize innovation music learning and the vital connections music education is providing.


SupportMusic Coalition

The SupportMusic Coalition is a signature program of The NAMM Foundation that unites non-profit organizations, schools, and businesses working to assure that music education is supported in communities everywhere, and that all children have the opportunity to learn and grow with music.
