"Our organization feels that NAMM"s presence at the Super Bowl will instantly connect with the audience through celebrities like Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr’s message asking them to consider playing a musical instrument."
NAMM’s Wanna Play? is a national public awareness campaign designed to connect people of all ages with the pleasures and benefits of playing music. For more information about the campaign, visit www.wannaplaymusic.com or “Like” the campaign page on Facebook at www.facebook.com/wannaplaybynamm.
