Music in Our Schools Month
Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM®) began as a single statewide celebration in 1973, and has grown over the decades to encompass a day, then a week, and then in 1985 to become a month long celebration of music in our schools. March has been officially designated by NAfME the National Association for Music Education for the observance of MIOSM, the time of year when music education becomes the focus of schools across the nation.
The celebration continues to grow each year, reaching more and more students, teachers, musicians, and music supporters. Schools and communities throughout the country and overseas celebrate MIOSM with concerts and other activities based on the year's theme.
Does your school have a special event planned? If so, let NMEA know by contacting the NMEA Editor, Joyce Patch.
