Music In Our Schools Month

March 2013 is Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM).

The 2013 Music In Our Schools Month logo is "Music Education * Orchestrating Success." Music for the Concert for MIOSM is now available on the NAfME website, including the student-composed piece - "The Power of Music" which is an excellent advocacy song. http://musiced.nafme.org/concert

Student Performance Proposals are due in the NAfME office by September 28th. After that time, NAfME will review the proposals and select the schools to appear on the NAfME website during March 2013. They would love to have all 50 states represented in the Concert this year, so please help Kansas be represented - or even better - send in your own proposal! http://musiced.nafme.org/files/2012/08/Student_Performance_Proposal_fillable.pdf

No video is required at this early date. The proposals are only brief written descriptions of how a teacher would stage a song for the Concert. Only teachers who are selected will send video for NAfME to use on the website, and that will be in December. As the Concert appearance is an NAfME member benefit, only current active NAfME members' proposals will be included in March. Please consider submitting a proposal and help Kansas be represented in the 2013 MIOSM video.

To Me, Music Is...
...life. Without music, there would be nothing worth living for (except a couple of things). It's music that gets me through my day, every day. Music puts the meaning into life (and everything else).
