Two NAMM Programs That Support Young Musicians’ Learning and Growth
Investor Priam Sen is the chairman of Monarch Holdings, a firm that invests in organizations across various industries. A lover of music, Priam Sen supports the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM).
NAMM operates various programs aimed at educating young musicians and presenting them with opportunities to increase their chances of success. Two of these programs are NAMM Young Professionals (NAMM YP) and The Best Communities for Music Education (BCME) program.
NAMM YP is a network of young music industry professionals under 40 years of age. Members receive access to exclusive NAMM YP events where they get to forge lifelong partnerships with peers and learn from industry veterans. NAMM YP is also working on a mentorship program that will match members with industry professionals for a year, helping young professionals develop under the guidance of commercially successful musicians and others in the music industry.
BCME, meanwhile, is a program that recognizes schools and school districts that support music education. The national recognition program gives schools the tools to increase their visibility, advance their music programs, and increase music curriculum access among students.
