On January 22, 2015 the NAMM show began and was held throughout the weekend until the 25th. The National Association of Music Merchants is held throughout the year and for the start of the year it was held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif.
At the Sat. morning breakfast session Steve Wozniak, Apple Co-Founder was there to discuss technology and inspiring individuals in their fields. Wozniak discussed what it was like to create the Apple computer and how he started with NAMM President and CEO, Joe Lamond.
He talked about what it was like to attend smaller concerts rather than bigger ones and much more about what technology and music has done to shape his life. The modeling of the two together was beautiful put together and an important truth in the life of people.
After the presentation the conference continued in rest of the convention center where hundreds of music merchants gathered along with hundreds of individuals interested in learning more about different specialities and instruments.
This event is put on each year and is perfect for anyone who is interested in music, learning more about various instruments and technology that helps with music. It is the perfect event for individuals who want to hear new and old music by fantastic performers and artists.
While I was only able to attend a bit of the event I found it captivated me to learn and improve various techniques. For college students, this event is a peak into the music world and how with just a bit of music the love of it can make a great impact in people’s world.
The part that most captivated me was the quote that Wozniak brought up at the end of his interview session.
“Music is like a magic dust bringing love to people,” Wozniak said.
