Music and arts champion Congresswoman Bonamici will provide opening remarks, followed by a brief Q&A session moderated by Mary Luehrsen, NAMM’s Director of Public Affairs and Government Relations to provide updates on school reopening activity at the Federal level, as well as advocacy efforts at all levels, and encourage continued championship of music education as an essential part of a well-rounded education that must be included in all back-to-school plans. Following the opening of the event, business owners from across the country will talk about their activity at the state level and two master music teachers will reflect on their online teaching experiences during the pandemic. On March 11, Representative Bonamici gave a speech on the U.S. House Floor highlighting that access to music and arts is more important than ever: “My mom was a piano teacher and I know that music is an important part of a well-rounded education. During these challenging times, arts education can help students cope, begin to heal, and awaken minds in ways that will benefit students for years to come.”
