MUSIC EDUCATION ADVOCACY NEWS—from around the nation and in Washington, D.C.

Grassroots Advocacy Resources

In school districts nationwide, music education programs are being reduced or eliminated altogether.  

At the same time, we know that music education programs in schools offer a multitude of invaluable benefits for students ranging from collaboration and communication skills, creativity, self-expression, and leadership to improved academic outcomes. 

Teaching music in classrooms is essential if we want to truly offer a world-class education to our students.

NAfME advocates at the national, state, and local levels to educate elected officials and other decision makers about the impact and importance of music education programs. 

By working together, we are changing the national conversation about music’s role in delivering an outstanding education to all students. 

We need your help to ensure access to music education for all students.
