Music In Our Schools Month

March is national Music In Our Schools Month sponsored by the The National Association of Music Education.  The theme for 2011 is "Music Lasts a Lifetime".

Nationwide our music programs are in danger as state and local legislators are attempting to make up for lack of funds in this difficult economy by cutting education budgets.  In many cases music programs are the first items on the chopping block.  Music comes so naturally with children and is an essential tool for learning.  It truly would be a sad day when music was no longer in our education system.  Now’s the time to get involved in your community and do your part to ensure that all students have access to a quality music education.
