How Does Your Community Rank in Music Education?

The third annual Best 100 Communities for Music Education Survey is now underway! From now through the end of March, visit www.amc-music.org on the internet to fill out the survey form and make sure your community is represented.

Sponsored by the American Music Conference, the Music Teachers National Association, the National School Boards Association, Perseus Development Corporation, the VH1 Save the Music Foundation and Yamaha Corporation of America, the survey analyzes program specifics, class size, financial data and a variety of other indicators to measure the overall quality of music education in a community. Private and independent instruction is considered alongside public school music programs in each community's score, and small communities are evaluated on an equal footing with large ones.

The Best 100 list will be published later this spring, and listed communities will be able to enjoy nationwide publicity for their achievements but your community can't make the list if you don't participate now. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey, and make sure to forward this message to anyone else who should fill it out as well.
