March is National Music in Our Schools Month!
March is National Music in Our Schools Month (MIOSM)! This year’s MIOSM theme is “Music: The Sound of My Heart.” The impact of music education on the lives of students during this particular school year, unlike any other, is evident in how the social-emotional benefits have carried them through the pandemic and brought joy in their communities.
The National Association for Music Education (NAfME) recognizes March as the thirty-sixth annual Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM®). Since 1985, MIOSM has been observed as a yearly month-long celebration when schools and communities celebrate music in their local schools and the educators who dedicate themselves to bringing music into the lives of students every day.
NAfME and the Council for General Music Education has created daily prompts to encourage learning and loving music in our schools. The prompt for the first day of Music in Our Schools Month is: Celebrate today by sharing your favorite song with someone!
