“The screenplay for The Sound Of Perfection is a terrific, inspirational true story that reveals the power of music as part of a complete education in our schools, an issue that has been a focus for NAMM since the late 1930’s. Currently, with many music programs in danger of being cut due to state budget deficits, there has never been a better time to reinforce the message about the importance of music in our schools and its ability to positively change people’s lives and shape our society. For this reason, NAMM and its 9,000 members around the world stand in support of this superb film project and look forward to helping in any way that we can.”
