Liz Reisman Fund for School Music Education

The fund was created to advance music education and honors the legacy and memory of former NAMM board member and music industry leader, Liz Reisman. 

Liz Reisman was the owner of Creative Music Center in Monroe, CT, and a passionate supporter of music education on a local and national level, advancing music-making opportunities for all school-aged children. To continue her work, and honor her memory for generations to come, the Reisman family created the Liz Reisman Fund for School Music Education. This donation, together with others made in Liz’s name, now and in the future, supports NAMM Foundation grants that impact school music education and help more people experience the joys of making music.

"Liz was beyond passionate about the influence music can and should have on our youth,” said her husband Mike Reisman.  “She was brought up with a flute in her hands and in many ways defined by her myriad experiences in schools, camps and community organizations dedicated to music education.  One of her greatest joys was to watch the smiles of children brimming with newfound self-esteem via music."

Consider a gift to the Liz Reisman Fund. Your gift is an investment in the transformative powers of music-making that validates our belief that music education is of vital importance to all people of all abilities across the lifespan.
