Music In Our Schools Month March has been officially designated by MENC: The National Association for Music Education for the observance of Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM ® ), the time of year when music education becomes the focus of schools across the nation.
The purpose of MIOSM is to raise awareness of the importance of music education for all children – and to remind citizens that school is where all children should have access to music. MIOSM is an opportunity for music teachers to bring their music programs to the attention of the school and the community and to display the benefits school music brings to students of all ages.
Have students list ways in which music is a part of their everyday lives. Have them compare lists with friends and family members. Participate in the World's Largest Concert on March 11, 2010World's Largest Concert Create a video for local advocacy. Record your students performing and include an introduction from your principal, mayor, or another leader demonstrating their support for music education. Use the video for outreach to television and radio stations, newspapers, and legislators. (See MIOSM and Advocacy for tips for working with the media.) Visit Music In Our Schools Showcase for video examples.MIOSM and AdvocacyMusic In Our Schools Showcase Make a "Music Month" calendar, and dress for different musical eras. Play appropriate music as students arrive in the morning and at lunchtime. Add a musical touch to the morning announcements. Try having a "mystery tune" each day, or a music trivia question, with MIOSM prizes for the winner. Ask the lunchroom to rename items using musical themes such as Polka Potatoes, Harmonic Ham Sandwiches, etc. Have students suggest these fun names.
Sponsor a poster or poetry contest. Posters and poems should support Music In Our Schools and revolve around the current year's theme. Have individuals from outside the school judge the entries. Plan an all-school sing. Have a talent show emphasizing music. Tell a story, a joke, or read poetry about music, and be sure to include traditional acts of singing, playing instruments, etc. Invite the parents, and choose a winning act from each class to perform in a winners' assembly. Collaborate with the art teacher and have students design posters, banners, and buttons featuring the MIOSM theme. Ask students to draw their favorite musical instrument, have them design an instrument of the future, or bring in homemade instruments for "show and tell". Collaborate with your school's history or social studies departments to create cross- curricular activities based on the theme of the concert or the pieces being performed. Ask students to cut pictures of music and musicians out of magazines and create a musical wall collage for your classroom(s).
Present faculty members with MIOSM buttons and ask that they wear them every day during March. Invite teachers in your school to sing along with your students at a concert. Better yet, create a teacher chorus or instrumental ensemble to perform at an MIOSM concert. Take a field trip during MIOSM to hear a local college group, community chorus or orchestra, or invite a group to perform at your school. Take advantage of MIOSM events to teach students about concert etiquette. Invite local Tri-M or Collegiate MENC members to participate in your MIOSM plans through performing, teaching, games, and discussions. Take students to a local senior center or hospital and invite everyone to participate in the sing-along. Present students with lapel stickers to wear during MIOSM. Ask the local radio station if your group can record PSAs for MIOSM, and look into placing music education messages on local marquees.
Write a 1 page report on Why music matters to me? You can decorate it up as much as you want to so that I can hang them around the school next week.
Have your parents fill out the survey and return them to your classroom teachers tomorrow!!
