Anaheim, California

The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) invites music educators and school administrators from across the country to Anaheim, Calif. to experience NAMM’s “Music Education Days.” The seventh annual event will be held January 25-26 at the 2014 NAMM Show.

Hosted by the NAMM Foundation, music educators and school administrators will have access to NAMM’s premier industry-only music product trade show, where they will have an opportunity to preview the latest instruments, products and tools relevant to today’s music classrooms.

"Now in its sixth year, Music Education Days continues to celebrate and support music educators in their very important role of inspiring children to learn to play music,” said Mary Luehrsen, executive director of the NAMM Foundation. “This event brings together music education professionals to network with the industry and each other, but it also offers tools to create even better music programs in their districts.”

You are welcome to attend our events in the NAMM Foundation Lounge, located in the Anaheim Hilton, Level 2 California Ballroom A/B; however, our registration policy does not allow non-members to register for a NAMM Show Exhibit Hall badge on show site.

Professor Larry Livingston Keynote "ALL IN"

Saurday, January 25, 9:30 am
NAMM Foundation Lounge, Anaheim Hilton, Level 2

 "We imagine a future in which armies of people can look to their musical experiences in school as central to their development as successful students, professionals in the workplace, and adult contributors to society at large.  ALL IN is about reaching out to the entire student body, about embracing all music, irrespective of genre and style... In my presentation I will elaborate and cite examples where this very phenomenon is already happening." 

Canadian Brass Returns

Sunday, January 26, 9:30 am
NAMM Foundation Lounge, Anaheim Hilton, Level 2

"One need not be partial to brass, or even to classical music, to love Canadian Brass. After 40 years on stage, they've got the chops of virtuosos and the deadpan delivery of the best stand-up comics."  Don't miss these phenomenal performers and a discussion about their first music teachers.
