(Kingston, Jamaica): The March for Music Education (MME) engages the global music industry and fans in support of one of the world’s most treasured music institutions–The Alpha Institute School of Music in Kingston, Jamaica. MME is a non-profit campaign for musicians, record labels, management companies, and fans to join in support of Alpha and its mission to develop the next generation of music makers coming out of the legendary school at 26 South Camp Road in Kingston. The March for Music Education Campaign seeks to fund 20 music student scholarships for returning and deserving Alpha music students during the 2019-2020 academic year.
“We are so appreciative of the efforts of the artists, labels, and companies supporting the work being done at Alpha and in particular for the opportunity it affords to Alpha students,” says Margaret Little Wilson, Administrator of The Alpha Institute. “Youth music education has proven to contribute to community, professional and personal development. Alpha is looking forward to making connections and building relationships with music and education supporters around the world through the March for Music Education scholarship and instruction drive.”
