An experienced entrepreneur and Owner/CEO of Rivar's, Inc., an apparel manufacturer for the music performance industry, Beth brings her knowledge and commitment to growing and strengthening music education opportunities throughout the country. "We are strategically focused on our mission because music education matters," says Beth. "Empowering music educators through financial support for innovative and sustainable music programs creates positive impact for students, schools and communities, and I am truly honored to have the opportunity to lead the GAN organization into this exciting next phase of growth and development."

As part of the expansion, GAN also named Juliana Lee as Strategic Development Director to further grow the organization and expand its financial reach. With six years' prior experience growing the national non-profit Notes for Notes, Juliana is spearheading communication for GAN with key partners including teachers, corporations, foundations as well as the entertainment and media industries. Says Juliana, "With limited resources, our teachers connect with and celebrate their students' unique cultures through the common language of music. I'm thrilled for this opportunity to help identify, fund and elevate the superb music education innovators at the forefront of this important work."
