The Music Achievement Council is an action-oriented nonprofit enabling more students to begin and stay in instrumental music programs, to share real-world, successful strategies developed by instrumental music teachers.
“[Students] aren’t going to be professional players, they are going to be professional people,” said Herman Knoll. “You are trying to make them learn what it is to work, what it is to be disciplined, what it is to give your best effort, and why it’s important, and to be a team player.”
