Great Music Ed. NGOs You Can Support

While the budget never seems to go down for Congressional salaries, budget cuts continually drain away music programs in public schools. There are countless studies that show why music education benefits students (as well as adult learners) in numerous manners, but that doesn’t seem to matter to our politicians.
