It’s Music in Our Schools Month

March is Music in Our Schools Month

On Feb. 26, Gov. Roy Cooper proclaimed the special month for North Carolina to highlight the importance of music education.

“Music education shapes our children’s understanding of themselves and the world,” said Governor Cooper. “Through music, students develop skills including collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity that can help them succeed in school and in life.”

Research shows that music education helps improve student’s reading skills and keep students engaged in school. Schools with music education programs often have higher graduation and attendance rates.

March has been officially designated by the National Association for Music Education for the observance of Music In Our Schools Month, a time when music education becomes the focus of schools across the nation. Throughout March, music educators and students across North Carolina will celebrate the importance of quality music programs in the lives of young people.
