Country Music Foundation Overview
Programs: SCHOOL PROGRAMS: CMF presents a full slate of school and public programs throughout the year, adding depth to the stories told in our galleries. They are designed to assist teachers in addressing Tennessee State and national curriculum standards in science, social studies, music and language arts. CMF enjoys a close relationship with Metro Nashville Public Schools curriculum coordinators in a number of disciplines. Programs focus on music, history, costume design, musical instruments, and architecture. School visits can be customized and often combine a student program with a guided exhibition tour, which are small group and discussion-based, allowing students to make meaningful connections between the material and their own lives. In 2009, CMF partnered with MNPS, the Nashville Symphony and thirty-seven other organizations to offer 181 on- and off- site programs, including Shapes, Sound Holes and Strings; Cool Costumes; Making Waves at Studio B; Is it a Fiddle or a Violin? and Family Tradition. School programs drew close to 10,000 student and teacher visits from nineteen counties throughout Tennessee. CMF's cornerstone program, Words & Music, celebrated its 30th anniversary and utilized a newly developed Teachers Guide. In July, 2009, Words & Music was spotlighted in the White House Music Series: A Country Music Celebration.
