School Music...where the music begins, but so much more!

  • Schools with strong music programs have higher graduation rates.
  • School music prepares students to be life-long responsible learners and citizens who are career-ready for the 21st Century.
  • Students enrolled in music classes have higher attendance rates and are more engaged in school.
  • School music builds "arts-rich" communities.
  • School music bolsters creativity and a more innovative workforce.
  • Music students learn the value of working together to reach common goals.
  • School music enhances individual expression and self-discipline.

Never let the music end!

  • Keep music as a "core" subject taught in every Indiana school by highly qualified, licensed music educators.
  • Provide funding at a level that does not force local school leaders to eliminate or reduce music course offerings.
  • Ensure that student participation in music education is not limited by the emphasis on standardized tests.
  • Create an environment which attracts and retains quality music educators that will help grow the next generation of Indiana's leaders.
