The Country representatives will be in attendance on CAPITOL HILL advocating for the critical need for complete, high-quality music programs for all students.
"NAFME appreciates CMA FOUNDATION Board members and artists bringing their voices and stories to the table as we urge legislators to fully fund provisions that benefit music education programs," said NAFME Deputy Exec. Dir. CHRISTOPHER WOODSIDE. "Action does not end with ESSA's passage -- ensuring proper implementation takes place matters to the efficacy of ESSA. And we thank CMA FOUNDATION, KRISTIAN BUSH, and CHARLIE WORSHAM for joining NAFME members in advocating for music education."
