Hosted by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), in coordination with music education’s premier advocacy event, NAfME Hill Day, Beyond the Bubbles with Music: The Benefits of a Broader Minded Education is sponsored by Representative Alan Lowenthal (CA-47) and Representative Gregory Meeks (NY-05).
Panelists with a wide variety of experiences teaching music, playing music, and making music education policy will participate in a dialogue about the importance of ensuring that music maintains a central role in the education of all students, both in policy and in practice. Recent efforts in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act set the stage for a lively discussion.
Join us for an engaging and informative conversation!
