What is the role of music in educating our nation’s students? It’s a fact that studies have shown positive links between engagement with music and academic achievement. That’s important. But we believe that music does something even better for our students than what can be measured directly on a test score. Music shapes the way our students understand themselves and the world around them. It allows for deep engagement with learning. It nurtures creativity, curiosity, and personal motivation. In other words, music is essential to a superior 21st-century education.
At NAfME, we believe and invest in the students behind the scores. Read more about the Broader Minded movement here:
