Share your MIOSM Stories!

NAfME President Scott R. Sheehan wants to highlight the inherent virtues of music, including its ability to bring people together, create a sense of belonging, and cultivate relationships. You’re invited to share your and your students’ stories showing “What Music Means to Me.” Submit photos, videos, or short written testimonials sharing the impact music has had on you and your students. Please ensure you have permission prior to sharing student testimonials.

The testimonials will be shared on NAfME social media accounts and member communications and in a collage that will be presented at the virtual national MIOSM celebration on March 28 at 7:00 PM EDT. Click HERE to register for the celebration!

To ensure that President Sheehan’s vision includes testimonies from as many voices as possible, please share this survey with your own social network.
