If you are not a part of Support Music Coalition you need to be...
SupportMusic.com is a public service initiative that impacts resolve and support for music education in local communities around the United States and abroad. This advocacy effort now unites 588 national, regional and international organizations comprised of parents and community leaders seeking to improve access and opportunity in music and arts learning. Tens of thousands of concerned citizens visit the website every month and use its resources to keep music education strong in their schools and communities.
THE SUPPORTMUSIC COALITION is building a proactive and unified approach to federal, state and local level advocacy for music education as a core academic subject in schools. The coalition is united in its support of a complete education that includes music and arts instruction for all children.
This group considers itself a 'learning community', recognizing that effective advocacy requires targeted strategies and solutions designed for long-term success and that by sharing local advocacy efforts, the success of the mission expands.
The coalition invites individuals and all interested arts, education, civic engagement and youth-serving organizations to become affiliates, and encourages affiliate organizations to actively participate via task force efforts, dissemination of pertinent information to constituents and members, and by adding tools and materials to www.supportmusic.com that advance the advocacy mission and messages.
