HISTORY

Launched in 2005 by The Coalition for Music Education, Music Monday is one of the world’s largest single events dedicated to raising awareness for music education. Each year, hundreds of thousands of students, educators, and music makers participate in a simultaneous nationwide concert performance of an original song written by a Canadian artist.

Who?

Who?

Everybody. Although it often begins with students, teachers and their surrounding community, Music Monday also includes community groups, politicians, professional organizations, music industry, ensembles, and artists.

Why?

Why does it matter?

Because music matters and music programs create vital communities. Our young people deserve the success and benefits from learning, creating, and making music. Canada’s heritage and cultural future is in our classrooms!

When?

When?

It is a full day of celebration, always on the first Monday of May.  In 2019, Music Monday will happen on May 6th. Students, community groups, musicians and artists across the country joined their voices to sing the Music Monday anthem.

Where?

Where?

Across the country and around the world. The idea is that if one were to open the front door of his or her home and stand on the street on the first Monday in May, one would hear music and the skies would be filled with melody.
