The NAMM Foundation seeks to celebrate and recognize innovative and resourceful music education programs in the United States and those schools and communities that support them. This comprehensive survey requests information that reveals statistical and factual information about music education and related opportunities for students to learn music. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey and tell us about your music programs.

This survey is an opportunity for an individual school to be acknowledged for its commitment to music education, and as such, to be selected for the SupportMusic Merit Award. It is a 'school-only' distinction awarded as part of the Best Communities for Music Education survey. This award is NOT for a community of multiple schools or buildings, but for a single school and can be used by charter, private, parochial, and/or individual schools seeking this designation. If you are applying on behalf of a school district (i.e. multiple schools and grade levels) please complete the Best Communities for Music Education Survey.

NOTE:  There is no advantage to completing both the SMMA survey and the BCME survey.  If you represent an individual school, please complete the SMMA application.  If you are part of a district, please complete the BCME application.

All responses to this survey are confidential. The survey, its content, and any related communications are private and intended solely for the viewing and use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed. If you have any questions concerning your privacy please send an email to: info@nammfoundation.org .

It is critical to the scoring process that only ONE APPLICATION be submitted per school. We realize that many entities in your community may be excited about participating in this competition, and we strongly encourage you to work together to complete this comprehensive survey.

The survey will be available until January 31, 2018. To begin the survey, click "NEXT" below.
