Advocacy Efforts Come Together for Music Education Organizations Including AOSA

Under the direction of the National Association for Music Education, The Music Education Policy Roundtable is a group of music education organizations that have come together  to institute a music advocacy infrastructure dedicated to ensuring the presence and perseverance of music education programs in schools operated by highly qualified educators in their respective disciplines. With a purpose of uniting music advocates under a single banner with one voice, and to provide a top notch opportunity for music organizations to participate in advocacy initiatives, primarily via the efforts of the National Association for Music Education’s trained policy staff, this alliance of music advocacy organizations is working together to make music education a key focal point and discussion topic among elected officials and government agencies so as to promote the value that is inherent to quality arts education programming in schools and communities.

AOSA is excited to be a part of the distinguished list of music education organizations that make up The Music Education Roundtable including: NAfME, American String Teachers Association, GRAMMY Foundation, The Recording Academy, National Association of Music Merchants, League of American Orchestras, Chorus America, American Choral Directors Association, Percussive Arts Society, and VH1 Save the Music Foundation.
