The mission of the IMEA is to promote lifelong music learning and to provide leadership for music education

Music in Our Schools Month

March is Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM)... and Music In Our Schools Month means advocacy! 


Music programs nationwide are in danger. State and local legislators are attempting to make up for funding shortfalls in this difficult economy by cutting education budgets, which can place school music at risk. Advocacy takes place on many fronts, and advocates for music education need to learn to speak to different audiences, each of whom has a key contribution to make. Now’s the time to get involved and do your part to ensure that America’s students have access to a comprehensive, sequential music education taught by exemplary music educators!
