March is Music In Our Schools Month®!
Every March, NAfME members and students celebrate Music In Our Schools Month® – a special time to raise awareness of the importance of school music programs in communities and to community leaders with concerts, music activities, lessons, and advocacy.
NAfME invites all Collegiate chapters to get involved this March by holding their own Music In Our Schools Month celebration.
Here are several ideas to get you started –
- Invite local school musicians to participate in a “Side-by-side” ensemble concert, with school musicians performing alongside Collegiate musicians
- Offer a concert of a multi-generational ensemble in the community to show the long-lasting benefits of music education, with the 2018 MIOSM Concert Insert and MIOSM logos on promotional materials
- Music teacher appreciation awards event – invite all local schools to submit nominations, and ask local politicians/school board members to present awards
- Download the MIOSM Repertoire provided by Quaver Music
All Collegiate MIOSM projects can be submitted for consideration in the 2018 Collegiate Chapter of Excellence Award program! Click here to apply.
