NAMM recently announced the weeklong activities of its 6th annual National Wanna Play Music Week, May 7 to 13, and is encouraging its members to participate and inspire new music makers during the week. National Wanna Play Music Week is the year’s biggest effort on behalf of NAMM’s public awareness campaign, dubbed Wanna Play?, and utilizes public relations efforts to encourage potential music makers of all ages to experience the fun and benefits of making music by visiting their local retail stores and participating in the week’s many music-making activities. Members can join in on the fun that week by organizing their own National Wanna Play Music Week in-store events and promotions; arranging a Music Monday event at their store and engaging people to play instruments as a group; challenging the public to take NAMM’s “Pledge to Play” on Facebook; and maximizing the store’s visibility through public relations outreach.
NAMM has provided an outline of each day’s themed events and an online tool kit with template press releases, Web banners, logos, tips on how to arrange a Music Monday group music-making event, and downloadable music and lyrics to NAMM’s designated Music Monday song, called “I Wanna Play!” To view the tool kit and for more details about 2012 National Wanna Play Music week, visit www.namm.org/news/articles/namm-announces-plans-national-wanna-play-music-wee.
