ETM Celebrates Music in Our schools month®!

It’s Music In Our Schools Month® (MIOSM®)! MIOSM is a national event designated by the National Association for Music Education to celebrate and raise awareness around the importance of music education for all students—and to remind citizens that school is where all students should have access to music.

This year’s theme is “Music Is All of Us” and we have created special lessons for all of our teachers to share with their students at ALL of our partner schools across New York City! We’ll be celebrating all month, sharing highlights from the classroom, voices from our school partners, and opportunities to advocate for high-quality music education being a part of a well-rounded education for all students. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to share in the celebration!

Education Through Music: The Podcast
Why do all students need access to music education? How does music support students’ social and emotional well-being? What is music’s role in addressing the academic and emotional effects of the pandemic on students?

Every month, podcast host and ETM Instructional Supervisor, Noah Teachey, explores these questions and more as he sits down with guest teachers, students, families, schools administrators, and education researchers to discuss the importance of music education in our schools.

In this month’s episode, Noah sits down with fellow Instructional Supervisor Elijah Thomas to discuss approaches to centering Black History in the music classroom this month and every month. Their insightful conversation explores the role that music education has in shaping culture and its ability to inspire innovative ways for students to understand and respond to the truth of our country’s history. A number of influential teaching and community-building resources are highlighted in the discussion as well, available on our podcast page.
