WAMA Website Feedback

WAMA is an organization that supports all genres of American Acoustic Music. Since one of WAMA's top priorities is involving youth and helping people of all ages find their inner musician and creative spark, it was fantastic to receive this type of feedback from some of our young website visitors:


To the WAMA Board of Directors

"I just wanted to quickly say thank you! I'm a youth services librarian running a fun bluegrass and country music history class for 7-13 year olds, and I thought you all might enjoy hearing that we were able to get some great use out of your association's links list. We were even able to use some of this information for our most recent group project. Thanks so much for sharing!

One of our youngest, Annie has also asked me if I could share the article where she initially became interested in country music with you all, "From Austin to Tennessee: The History of Country Music" - I've listed it below if you'd like to review!

Initially I was a little hesitant to reach out, but I thought this could actually be a really fun addition for any other young aspiring musicians coming across your information, like Annie! I wondered if you wouldn't mind adding this one to your list? I find a little encouragement goes a long way, and would love to show Annie and the rest of the library group if you do choose to include it! wamamusic.com/links.html

Thanks so much,

"From Austin to Tennessee: The History of Country Music".
