The National Association for Music Education officially named March the “Music in Our Schools Month.” All schools should make music education their main focus for the entirety of March. Music in Our Schools Month first began as a one-day, statewide celebration in 1973. Over the years the program as shifted from one day, to one week, and finally, one month in 1985. Not only does the program raise awareness about the importance of music education throughout the nation, but also allows music teachers to draw attention to their individual programs within their own schools and communities. The program also aims to make everyone more aware of the benefits that music brings to students of all ages and backgrounds.
