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


Community Spotlight

I believe that our district offers both a quantity and quality of music programming that is unusual for its size. One simply would not expect a rural community of approximately 4,000 residents to offer the sorts of programming that we do. In recognition of this, a number of families from neighboring districts choose to open enroll their children in our schools in order to participate in our music programming. And none of this would be possible without the consistent support that our community provides.
