Thank you for participating in the 2022 Best Communities for Music Education survey to gain recognition for the ongoing commitment and support for music education in your community. Also, thank you for sharing  information about music education offerings in your community and a special appreciation for your ongoing efforts to meet the needs of your students and families through these historic times, and as we build toward the future.     

The NAMM Foundation’s Best Communities for Music Education program celebrates and recognizes innovative and resourceful music education programs in the United States and the schools and communities that support them.  This survey requests information that reveals statistical and data information about music education and related opportunities for students to learn music as part of a well-rounded education.  

This survey was developed in partnership with the Music Research Institute at the University of Kansas and WordCraft, LLC. Survey questions are aligned with goals for equity and access to music education for all students, and with national standards for music education. This survey seeks to support communities everywhere that are working to assure music education opportunities for all students.

Individual Schools:  If you are applying for ONE school (charter, parochial, private) serving students at various grade levels, please complete the SupportMusic Merit Award survey.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not complete both the BCME and SMMA survey. If you are applying for a DISTRICT, complete this survey.  If you are applying for ONE school, please complete the SMMA survey. It is critical to the scoring process that only ONE APPLICATION be submitted per district or school.  We realize that many entities in your community may be excited about participating in this process, however we strongly encourage you to designate one person, or one team leader to complete one survey for either a district or school.

All responses to the survey are confidential. The survey, its content and any related communications are private and are reviewed by the researchers referenced above and the project team at The NAMM Foundation.  Questions may be directed to: info@nammfoundation.org.

The survey will be available until January 31, 2022. To begin, click on the work “NEXT” below.
