ACEMM Short Informational Video

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.
