“Music in Our Schools Month is more than just a singular event,” says Michael A. Butera, NAfME’s executive director and CEO. “It is a coming-together of musical celebrations nationwide for the express purpose of recognizing how music education can orchestrate success for every student, teacher, parent, and person in our country.”

Music in Our Schools Month has always had deep roots in music education advocacy. In keeping with that, NAfME has just launched a new national initiative for 2014 called “Broader-Minded™” which effectively articulates new arguments that stress the importance of music in every child’s education.
