C.Terry Lewis was honored with the Ami & Remo Belli Humanitarian Award at the 6th annual Artbeat for Humanity Gala VI.

Terry Lewis is the former executive vice president of the Yamaha Corporation of America (until 2008) and was in charge of Yamaha’s U.S. musical instrument business in the U.S. for many years. He also served as president of two Yamaha subsidiary companies, Yamaha Artist Services, Inc. in New York City and Yamaha Entertainment Group, Inc. in Nashville, Tennessee. Until 2016, he also served as Chairman of the Yamaha Music and Wellness Institute, an organization that he co-founded in 2005 with CEO and noted neurologist Dr. Barry Bittman and the late Karl T. Bruhn.

He currently serves as a member of the Board of Directors for Banding Together, the San Diego-based nonprofit arm of the Music Therapy Center of California whose mission is to bring music opportunities to individuals with special needs.

“Terry Lewis is an initiator and an innovator of making music and drum circles part of the health and wellness lexicon – he was a key founder alongside other amazing people in music education and music therapy to prominently develop tools to use and benefit humanity at the Yamaha Music and Wellness Institute – a profound leader in the belief that music does the body, mind and soul good,” says Helen Dolas, CEO and founder Able ARTS Work. “The music, health and wellness industry would not be where it is today if it were not for Terry, for this we are all grateful.”
