The 2017 NAMM Show kicked off with the Anaheim Day of Service at Patrick Henry Elementary School on Tuesday, January 17.
The 2017 day of service began with a meet-and-greet over continental breakfast at the school, followed by an experience designed to inspire students, teachers, and NAMM members alike.
Volunteers unpacked and tuned instruments; interacted and assisted children during facilitator-led sessions in classroom settings; and packed up instruments when the sessions were complete. The NAMM Foundation matched up to $10,000 in donations to help the school sustain its music program; gifts were encouraged to support the reinstatement of music education in Anaheim.
