We would like to extend our deep appreciation to the Colburn School and the NAMM Foundation who through their partnership, support and shared philosophy have helped to make this project possible.
An internationally renowned performing arts institution located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, the Colburn School trains students from beginners to those about to embark on professional careers. The School comprises four academic units joined by a single philosophy: that all who desire to study music and dance should have access to top-level instruction.
The NAMM Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) trade association that supports programs, research and activities that promote music-making across the lifespan through its signature programs including Music Research, the Best Communities for Music Education, the SupportMusic Coalition, Talking Up Music Education Podcast…
