Our Investment Is More Than A Monetary Transaction; It’s A Partnership
The CMA Foundation doesn’t just grant money to schools and organizations or settle for adequate music programs. We are committed to providing quality resources, implementing the best practices, and investing in the overall infrastructure to ensure the music education programs we’re helping to build end up are thriving and delivering successful and lasting results.
For us, it’s not just about creating the next generation of musicians, but providing the resources to create collaborative, creative, and forward-thinking leaders.
COMMUNICATION IS KEY
On this episode of Breakfast with Tiffany, CMA Foundation Executive Director Tiffany Kerns talks about why it’s so important to not only spend time with grantees, but continue to engage in regular communication with them.
It’s impossible to teach without the proper materials. We help physically equip music education programs.
Students can’t thrive if their teachers aren’t thriving. We create an environment where teachers are well-supported and well-educated, so they are equipped and confident.
You can have willing teachers and proper materials, but without an effective strategy, you won’t see results. We partner with schools and community organizations to solve challenges and strengthen the quality of music education.
When students have life-long access to music education, their capacity for social, emotional, cognitive, and artistic development increases. Our primary focus is helping students reach their full potential.
Knowing what’s working and what isn’t is an invaluable resource when it comes to improving music education. The research and data we receive from past grantees also help us provide evidence for success and why we do what we do.
