We recognize music education as an essential component of the social and cultural fiber of society and education, and as an aural art form that satisfies our human need to respond to life experiences through creating, writing or arranging, singing, listening, and/or playing a musical instrument.
We are pleased to share the following resources:
Case Studies: These case studies feature key advice for building a quality music program from the following award-winning schools:
- Case Study Lancaster Catholic High School, Lancaster, Pa.
- Case Study North Hills High School, Pittsburgh, Pa.
- Case Study St. Francis Preparatory School, Fresh Meadows, N.Y.
Program Evaluation Tool: Specific criterion for schools to use as a program evaluation tool or to apply for a Program of Distinction in Music, which is awarded to schools with exemplary programs in a specific subject area.
Contact information for member schools that have demonstrated excellence in music. We encourage you to use other schools as a resource. Set up a time to tour a program and learn from each other’s experiences. Ask questions. Get to know each other. Learn!
