"The International Society for Music Education (ISME) believes that lived experiences of music, in all their many aspects, are a vital part of the life of all people. ISME's mission is to enhance those experiences by: Building and maintaining a worldwide community of music educators characterized by mutual respect and support, Fostering global intercultural understanding and cooperation among the world's music educators, Promoting music education for people of all ages in all relevant situations throughout the world."
National Association for Music Education (NAfME), among the world’s largest arts education organizations, is the only association that addresses all aspects of music education. NAfME advocates at the local, state, and national levels; provides resources for teachers, parents, and administrators; hosts professional development events; and offers a variety of opportunities for students and teachers. The Association has supported music educators at all teaching levels for more than a century.
"The National Association of Schools of Music was founded in 1924 to secure a better understanding among institutions of higher education engaged in work in music; to establish a more uniform method of granting credit; and to develop and maintain basic, threshold standards for the granting of degrees and other credentials."
"This set of free online resources for music teachers includes lesson plans and activities, summative and formative assessments, video examples, and documented best practices. Designed to be effective and adaptable in a wide variety of music classrooms, the resources were developed through Carnegie Hall’s five-year residency in a New York City elementary/middle school."
"This is who makes it all happen. We rely on a think tank of some of the best and brightest minds in music education, who volunteer to present, teach, and help govern our non-profit. We all love music. We all love making music, and doing so with the modern, latest methods, while applying the timeless standards of music instruction, composition, performance, and recording techniques."
