This March, music educators and music students will be celebrating music education in their schools and communities with concerts and classroom activities that show how “Music Changes Lives,” the theme of the 2020 observance of Music In Our Schools Month®.
The impact of music education on the lives of students is evident in its social-emotional effect on young people and how they interact with the world around them.
The National Association for Music Education (NAfME) recognizes March as the thirty-fifth annual Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM®). Since 1985, MIOSM has been observed as a yearly month-long celebration when schools and communities celebrate music in their local schools and the educators who dedicate themselves to bringing music into the lives of students every day.
This year the NAfME Council for General Music Education has provided teachers resources to show the learning process throughout the whole school year.
