ACEMM ~ Lighting the Way for Music Education Today

Spark Grants

The newest ACEMM initiative is the Spark Grant, a philanthropic endeavor designed to provide teachers with funding for projects based in elemental music and movement. At any time throughout the year, teachers may submit grant requests up to $500 per project idea based in elemental music and movement.   


Over the past six years, ACEMM has launched many philanthropic and supportive initiatives, including:

The Beacon Scholarship

The Beacon Scholarship began in 2013 as a way to support the professional growth and creative ventures of music and movement educators. The Beacon Scholarship carries with it a monetary award of up to $1500 based on the scope of the project. ACEMM is proud to support educators and, in turn, the many students who are directly impacted by this award.


Spotlight Awards

The Spotlight Award has been a way for ACEMM to feature outstanding music and movement educators. This award serves to recognize teachers in their school communities, highlighting the important work they carry out with students on a daily basis.


Lesson Sharing

ACEMM strives to inspire teaching excellence by providing informative content shared by elemental music and movement educators through our Spotlight Corner Resource offerings. These free lesson ideas allow educators to share the imaginative and artistic ways they are using elemental music and movement with their students.  


Mobile Ensemble

ACEMM recognizes the investment and support a music program must have in order to obtain instruments to support elemental teaching. In response, ACEMM designed a unique way for teachers to experience the possibilities through the Mobile Ensemble, a traveling set of instruments teachers can apply to borrow in order to demonstrate the power of music and movement in their community. 


You Matter!

We at ACEMM honor you for your commitment to the promotion of joyful elemental education throughout the world. As the Day of Giving approaches, any contribution you are able to make will directly support the development of the new Spark Grant initiative and help bring to life music and movement initiatives that will support teachers and enrich the artistic lives of their students.

We thank you for you support of the Spark Grant Initiative this holiday season.
