The time for simply lamenting the end to public music education’s heyday is over (It’s been at least 40 years!). There’s real strength and power to what arts education is accomplishing in our nation’s schools. But it is, in fact, accessible to too few students. Learn how orchestras can take action, both through programmatic work and your advocacy, to create a sea-change in music education for future generations.

Attendees will walk away with: 1) an understanding of how orchestras connect to the latest education trends, including Common Core and the new National Arts Standards; 2) the know-how to access data that supports the music education claims we make to funders and community leaders; 3) a re-imagined idea of how board, volunteers, staff, and musicians can make a real difference.
