In 1973, the Music In Our Schools celebration was initiated by the Music Educators National Conference (MENC). MENC, now the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), expanded this celebration of musical education to encompass the entire month of March in 1985.

Why Is Musical Education So Important?

Music In Our Schools Month® reminds us of all the positive impacts musical education has on our children. Learning music has been proven to positively affect academic abilities and self-confidence while teaching children important life skills such as patience and perseverance.

You can learn more about how music benefits children by reading a couple of our previous articles:
