We know that music education programs are deeply valued in K-12 schools throughout the world. Everyone understands their responsibility to the creative pursuits of young minds and therefore, music education is supported in public education by all constituents-- students, parents, educators, administrators, education boards, and community.
Over the past ten years, through research and ongoing conversations, the focus of The Music Stand Foundation is changing. While still advocating strengthening the amount of time every student receives with music teachers, and ensuring consistent delivery and building of programs over time, The Music Stand Foundation now focuses toward research in the areas of creating and composition in K-12 public music education programs and develops music education materials related to composing, technology, and virtual environments for all music teachers and music students.
As well, the vision of The Music Stand Foundation is to further the study of creativity in public school classrooms and arts education programs through development of opportunities for both students and music teachers that envelop musical creativity and writing music. Through funding.
The Music Stand Foundation raises money to support Music Tech Café – Young Composers EnsembleTM, a professional development program that places music teachers and music students together in the same room to develop essential experiences around songwriting, composing, and arranging.
