Welcome to the National Association of School Music Dealers!

Our Association represents retailers, manufacturers, and service providers who share a passion for helping school music students make music.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have completely rethought what we do and how we do it. Every fall, our members strive to give students the opportunity to experience the joy of playing an instrument. Instead of going to the schools to give children a "hands-on" experience, our members have figured out alternative ways to allow for instrument trials. They've also figured out ways to help teachers get kids excited about being in their school music program. We are a group of creative, passionate music-makers who know the importance of participating as musicians.

Our sponsors, too, have created new tools and resources in support of school music. A silver lining of these difficult times is how we have banded together (pun intended) to help keep the music going, in the classroom and online!

When we meet at our annual convention, we have the chance to share best practices for business, technology and social media. We also have the chance to make real connections with our peers and suppliers. NASMD is the place to be for every school music retailer. Please keep March 17-20 reserved for the 2021 NASMD convention. More news to follow soon!

If you aren't yet a member of NASMD and are passionate about serving school music students, teachers, & parents, I invite you to join NASMD today.
