Music Industry and Higher Education: A Shared Vision
The 2021 Summer NAMM Show took place in Nashville, Tennessee this past month. Made possible by the NAMM-CMS Fellows Program, twenty-three colleagues from every chapter of our society and across the music disciplines came together during the Show to explore the vast ways in which music drives our economies here and abroad.
The Fellows Program serves as an example of the music industry’s and higher education shared vision for fostering a continuing love of music and music-making, both for professional artists (those who are paid) and for those who do so simply for the love of it. What the National Association of Music Merchants and The College Music Society share is a belief that music is the soundtrack of people’s lives and that partnering in providing broad access to music and music education is not only good for our art form, but good for our shared futures as providers of artistic experiences.
