We at ACEMM are thankful for all of our supporters!
Over the past six years, ACEMM has launched many philanthropic and supportive initiatives, including Beacon Scholarships, Spotlight Awards, Mobile Ensembles, Travel Grants for Elemental Ensembles and now, a brand new program joins the ranks. ACEMM is proud to offer Spark Grants!
You may have seen one of our posts on Facebook, or visited our booth at the AOSA National Conference this week in Cincinnati. Perhaps you know a teaching colleague who was featured in our Spotlight Awards. But do you know who ACEMM is?
We know you love ACEMM as much as we do!
Stop by the ACEMM booth, snap a photo, and share a few thoughts on why #iloveACEMM. The exhibit hall’s grand opening is at 5:30 on Thursday, stop by then at our booth, say hello, and pick up a newly designed set of ACEMM building block rhythm cards!
No tricks! You’ve been a treat for ACEMM all the year through!
