You probably already know that music is important to our society. What we often struggle with is knowing what to do about it. One great resource is the MENC website. They have a lot of information about what is going on in the world of music education, along with some GREAT suggestions of ways to support musical education. They have lists of ways to stay informed, and people to contact to show your support. They also sponsor a FREE membership in their MusicFriends program. I have been a member for several years and appreciate knowing that I am showing my support to such an important cause.
