Advocacy in Action Awards

The Advocacy in Action Awards Program is designed to collect and share local music education advocacy ideas across America. Winning entries will be promoted at all Music for All programs and in both digital and print materials. Any scholastic music program in the United States has the opportunity to be recognized.

Educational Initiatives

 Music for All has broadened and modified its approach to expanding scholastic music education opportunities, refining new pathways for student and music program participation. Through our Urban Education Programming, Small/Rural School initiatives, and dedication to Indianapolis Public Schools, we are committed to the idea that every child across America deserves access and opportunity to music education.

Urban Music Programming

Designed to create and implement sustainable student-teacher driven collaboration and tools intended to increase participation and reduce barriers to scholastic music-making within core-urban school communities along the I-65 corridor (from Gary, Indiana to Mobile, Alabama).

Indianapolis public schools

Since 2003, Music for All has been committed to the Indianapolis Community to ensure that music and arts support starts first at home. 

Small and Rural School Programs

As a partner program of Music for All, the Central Indiana Track Show Association provides musical access for students in small and rural school communities across Indiana. 

Music Education Alliance

The College Band Directors National Association (CBDNA), Music for All, and National Band Association (NBA) are dedicated to the attainment of a high level of excellence for bands at all levels of instruction. These organizations have joined forces to create this collaborative initiative to support bands underappreciated communities.
