The Microwave Dave Music Education Foundation’s (MDMEF) mission is to partner with North Alabama educators to develop innovative initiatives like our flagship program “Concerts in the Classroom” that facilitates musical performances by accomplished local musicians in a classroom environment. This effort is aimed at providing a creative and educational platform that fosters an awareness and appreciation for music and the arts for students in North Alabama. The Microwave Dave Music Education Foundation board and volunteers are a group of highly motivated individuals from the business and arts community dedicated to inspiring through music education. Our purpose is to enlighten and motivate students by providing them with an opportunity to experience live music and interact in an informative way with professional musicians representing a wide variety of genres. Our singular goal, by way of the support of local musicians, is to foster creative development in the young minds of our community.
The Foundation is currently a “not-for-profit” group that works with local musicians, educators and music teachers to support and promote music education in North Alabama. The Board operates with the support, direction and encouragement of internationally known blues musician, Microwave Dave Gallaher.
