METRO NASHVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS’ music programs will include contemporary curriculum that utilizes new technologies in a way that reflects TODAY’s music. For the first time the schools will have an Office of Music Education with a full-time director and staff.
DEAN said, “Through Music Makes Us, MUSIC CITY will become the standard bearer of what music education can be and should be in public education.
