Created by NAMM partners, the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) and the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), the Fall 2020 Guidance for Music Education document provides practical guidance for PreK-12 schools as administrators and music educators seek to provide meaningful music instruction for students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this unique time, music educators are modifying their practices not only in teaching, but in classroom orientation, cleaning, spacing and management. It is understood that, as trained professionals, music educators want to offer the very best instruction so all students can learn and grow in their knowledge, understanding, and love of music. This guide asserts that music educators can still do that, but also acknowledges that how this teaching is delivered may be different than in the past.
NAMM members are encouraged to distribute this valuable resource to school music networks, state and district administrators and school boards, as soon as possible.
