Just Play: New NAMM Foundation PSA Campaign Unveiled At 2013 NAMM Show

National PSA campaign reminds all people to drop the excuses and just play music

CARLSBAD, Calif., Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This past weekend, at the close of its most successful NAMM Show yet, the National Association of Music Merchants' NAMM Foundation unveiled its new public service announcement campaign, "Just Play." The spot will air this spring in a multi-media, national campaign that will include ads for television, radio, billboards, bus shelters, airports, malls and anywhere one can hear, think about or play music.

"I believe that there are two kinds of people in the world, those who play music and those who wish they did," said Joe Lamond, president and CEO, NAMM. "This PSA is designed for the latter."

"Just Play" encourages people of every age to let go of the excuses that keep them from learning to play a musical instrument, be it age, time, ability or access, and just play music. A Gallup Poll revealed that 85 percent of Americans who do not play a musical instrument wish that they did.

The television spot for the campaign, "Twinkle," opens with a child's one-fingered version of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," and builds as people of all ages join together, layering on different interpretations of the classic. Showcasing the accessibility of and ease with which one can learn to play music, the spot ends with a compelling imperative to just play.

The "Just Play" campaign underscores NAMM and NAMM Foundation's year-round initiatives designed to create more active music makers, including scientific research on the benefits of making music, publicizing musical success stories from everyday music makers, and inspiring ways in which music makes people's lives better.
