Executive Director

Ms. Jane Mell Balek

BIO

As former deputy executive director with the National Association for Music Education and CEO/executive director of the Give A Note Foundation, Balek was instrumental in spearheading six national awareness campaigns and raised millions of dollars to support and strengthen music education programs across the United States. These programs have reached millions of parents and students and provided more than $1.2 million in direct grants to schools in over 100 communities throughout the country.

In June 2016, Balek was honored as one of the year's five prestigious Lowell Mason Fellows from the National Association for Music Education. This distinction is one of music education's most important honors, and is designed to recognize the accomplishments of music educators, music education advocates, political leaders, industry professionals, and others who have contributed to music education in their unique way.
