Today Wraps Up 'National Wanna Play Music Week'
May 7, 2010 at 5:44 AM (PT)
National Wanna Play Music Week, MAY 3rd-7th, ends on a high note with the announcement of National Music Store Appreciation Day by NAMM, the trade association of the international music products industry. The commemorative day will recognize and thank the thousands of local business heroes who help to promote music-making.
"As most musicians will attest, community music stores are largely responsible for inspiring people of all ages to pick up an instrument and learn how to play," said NAMM Pres./CEO JOE LAMOND. "These often unsung heroes are vital to bringing the art of music-making to neighborhood kids and local residents. It's more than just a place to buy an instrument, but rather, an inspiring space for aspiring music makers."
Stores around the country will be hosting music open houses and other special events on National Music Store Appreciation Day.
