The NAMM Foundation supports teachers, parents and community leaders with resources and programs to advance music making for all.
This recognition is further evidence of our district’s commitment to the arts, which has endured despite inadequate funding at the state level. Our staff, our families and this board have consistently demonstrated support for music education, recognizing its impact on academic achievement, and we are incredibly grateful for the added resources provided by the Irvine Company and the Irvine Public Schools Foundation. As a result of the collaboration that occurs in Irvine, music education is alive and well in our community, benefiting thousands of students.
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.
