In the summer of 2018, MMEA was awarded an advocacy grant through the Country Music Association (CMA) Foundation
. Through a partnership with the East Lansing Public Schools, and 12+ months of planning, collaborating, and editing, we have created a new advocacy video highlighting the power of music education, and the amazing impact it can have on the lives of students each and every day.
We believe that every PK-12 student in Michigan deserves equal access to a comprehensive and sequential music education, taught by a certified music educator as part of a well-rounded curriculum. We are sharing this video with teachers, parents, students, school districts, policy makers, and arts education leaders…and we encourage you to do the same. Together we can work to ensure equal access to a top-quality music education for ALL Michigan students.
