4th Annual "Teach Music Week":  March 19-25, 2018

Keep Music Alive is celebrating the 4th Annual "Teach Music Week" (formerly Teach Music America Week) from Monday March 19th to Sunday March 25th. We are encouraging musicians and music schools everywhere to find one new student they can begin to teach by offering one free 30 minute lesson. We are also inviting all interested music students (kids and adults) to seek out a music school or musician participating in "Teach Music Week".  We have chosen a week in March to coincide with National "Music in Our Schools Month" (MiOSM) to help focus attention on the importance of including music and arts as part of our children's education. Public and private schools can participate by asking current music students to invite their friends to music class and band/chorus rehearsals.

600+ Locations across 50 States, Canada and beyond participating in 2018!

Why is this important?

We all know, that often the biggest hurdle to anything is just getting started. We believe that by encouraging music teachers and potential students to reach out to each other, many of these new students will continue to learn and play music long after the month of March is over. Our goal is to get as many new students to begin learning how to play music as we can. Only by sparking musical interest in new students will quality music be created for future generations.
