Discover the possibilities of elemental music and movement

The American Center for Elemental Music and Movement… Creates opportunities for educators, learners and performers to experience the intrinsic value of elemental music and movement in their artistic and pedagogical lives. These opportunities will be developed through programs that: educate; provide material resources for performance and creativity; foster an appreciation of elemental music and movement. It is ACEMM’s goal to enhance the lives of those who experience the humanizing touch of elemental music and movement.

  • ACEMM Mobile Ensemble

    In classrooms like this one, where teachers are sharing elemental music and movement experiences without resources like barred instruments, drums, or small percussion instruments, ACEMM regularly provides these important extensions to reinforce the artistic learning that is taking place there.

  • Spotlight Award

    In a concerted effort to “spotlight” excellence among professionals exhibiting outstanding accomplishments and dedication to advancing and expanding elemental music and movement at local and regional levels, ACEMM’s Spotlight Award is given based upon recommendation from our colleagues on a quarterly basis.

  • Beacon Scholarship

    The Beacon Scholarship provided by ACEMM opens avenues for experienced music and movement educators to expand their professional development and broaden their own experiences, and, positively impact the lives of their students and colleagues.

Day of Giving: Spark Grants Lighting the Way for New Possibilities

Our newest grant opportunity is the “Spark Grant”.  These small grant opportunities will fill the gaps for that special “something” teachers and students may need.  Instruments—it may be that a school concert would be enhanced by two beautiful glockenspiels.  Props–perhaps students are exploring movement, and that experience would be enhanced with black lights.  Costuming–the sky is the limit here!  Perhaps that dream is just beyond a teacher or school’s annual budget.  ACEMM and the community which shares our vision of quality, creative, music and movement education are here to help!  Spark Grants can fund projects or ideas up to $500 which are tied to elemental music and movement concepts.

Thank you for supporting ACEMM, music and movement teachers, and their students by donating today!

We celebrate living in the moment with festivals of light and giving, and we dedicate ourselves to renewal and hope with the promises of a new year and a bright future. As you reflect on your own blessings and visions for the future, we thank you for your support of ACEMM.
