NAfME: Advocacy Resources for Music Making in Fall 2021

Please read the message below from Tooshar Swain, NAfME Director of Public Policy and Advocacy.

In a continued effort to provide resources to music educators regarding safe music teaching practices in response to COVID, and in response to requests from the field, NAfME public policy staff have created two new resources. The first, Using the Performing Arts Aerosol Research Study to Keep Music in Our Classrooms, has been designed to help members, administrators, and the media better understand the Performing Arts Aerosol Research Study, and the recommended mitigation tactics. The second is the Music Education Pandemic Fact Sheet, which has been designed to support music educators with up-to-date information to help advocate for the safe return of in-person music making in our schools. Finally, you will see on the landing page a link to state COVID-19 resources and guidelines that was created last month.
