Clay Aiken Among Artists Who Support Music Education

MENC is The National Association for Music Education. It is the world's largest arts education organization. MENC works to ensure that every student has access to a well-balanced, comprehensive, and high-quality program of music instruction taught by qualified teachers.

MENC has put out a series of PSA's from various artists voicing their support for music in schools. Those artists include Clay Aiken, Marty Stuart, Trisha Yearwood, Al Jarreau, Kathy Mattea, Gloria Estefan, Vanessa Williams, Patty Loveless, Janis Ian, Faith Hill, Chely Wright, Tim McGraw, Roger McGuinn, and Bonnie Raitt.

Here is an example of those PSA's.









Despite the decline of music in public schools over the years, music remains an important part of our education and growing up to become confident, productive members of society. Other links of interest: Benefits of Music Education, Music Education Online
