Finding meaning and purpose through music


NAMM Foundation

Talking Up Music Education is a podcast from The NAMM Foundation about music education. Recorded live from 2018 Summer NAMM, episode 57 includes an interview with American folklore scholar and former Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts Bill Ivey.

“Music education needs to make its point as loudly as possible, because there are a lot of pressures out there that’s saying technology can substitute for everything,” said Ivey. “If everything of meaning can be found on a screen, I know that’s not true, but there are a lot of forces lined up that want us to believe that.”

During the podcast, Ivey explores ideas for how to achieve meaning and purpose in life through art and music as American society moves away from work and wealth as a means to fulfillment.

This week one lucky winner will receive the new MA-50 microphone from Mojave Audio.
