March Is Music in our Schools Month

Celebrate the role that music plays in education during March as part of Music in our Schools Month. Not only does it help to stimulate creativity and offer a soundtrack to our lives, but it also causes interesting things to go on in our brains, as neuroscientists are now learning.

2015 marks the 30th anniversary of the program. What began as a day-long celebration across New York state in 1973 expanded to a weeklong event four years later. In 1985, the celebration took on its current nationwide, month-long approach. This year's theme is "Music Makes Me _____."

Here are some Science NetLinks resources to get you started on your musical education journey:
