Education Through Music was front row at Keith Urban’s concert on the TODAY Show on August 7, 2015. ETM was excited to support Urban as the Country Music Association’s first artist ambassador for their recently announced, “Music Education Matters” initiative. We also wanted to personally thank Urban for donating 20 “Keith Urban” guitars to ETM.
The CMA Foundation has been a long-time supporter of Education Through Music and we are proud to be one of the “Music Education Matters” partner programs. “Music Education Matters” supports effort to keep music education in schools and provides musical instrument and teaching support to programs serving inner-city youth.
CMA and the CMA Foundation have donated more than $11 million to music education on behalf of the artists who perform at the annual CMA Music Festival for free. CMA’s support of Education Through Music helps us to improve the lives of vulnerable children by giving them access to quality music instruction as part of their overall education experience.
