Music In Our Schools Month® (MIOSM®)

As one campaign closes a new one begins

Music in Our Schools Month National Logo


During the month of April, NCMEA is promoting a new initiative we’re calling Music In Our Homes Month (#MIOHM).

NC teachers are using digital technology in an attempt to stay connected with their students following Governor Cooper’s official statewide Stay-At-Home order.

NCMEA wants to share the creative ways our colleagues are exploring this new reality of online education and making music at home.

We ask that you please post your photos and videos on social media. Tag @NCMEA and share it with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #MIOHM.

NCMEA Member Sherry Blevins is sharing musical resources for her composition I Dream of a World (We Can Begin Again) for NC Music Educators during MIOSM® 2020.

Sherry believes music education transforms lives by building a sense of community as it touches souls and heals hearts. She is a music educator, conductor, clinician, and more recently, a lyricist and composer. Read her Full Bio here.
