Support for music education stands at the front of class as the music industry gathers for the 2016 NAMM Show, January 21-24, 2016. Throughout the year, the NAMM Foundation works toward a world in which every child has a deep desire to learn music and a recognized right to be taught. That work hits a high note when nearly 100,000 members of the music industry come together in Anaheim.

Day 2 of NAMM 2016 started out with keynote speaker, Tony Brown, at the TEC Tracks Sessions, with an informative talk about his career and how important it is to take advantage of opportunities. Often credited as the founding father of the Americana country movement, Tony took us from his early days playing keyboards for Elvis and Emmylou Harris to becoming an A&R guy for labels in Nashville then moving all of the way to producing musicians from Reba McEntire, Tricia Yearwood and more recently, Cyndi Lauper!  He entertained us with his stories while teaching us how to dive into situations and just believe in yourself. His words about his friends saying “You are so lucky” when he would get a gig with a famous musician or singer, really hit me. He said luck is just the combination of preparedness plus opportunity. He made us all feel confident walking out to tackle the day!   More about Tony here: http://www.tonybrownenterprises.com  Thanks to NAMM, the TEC Tracks Sessions have been valuable to many different types of conference attendees.
