WHO WE ARE

The Coalition for Music Education was founded in 1992 when representatives of more than 20 music education organizations came together to share ideas to improve the state of music education in Canada. The Coalition quickly began working with parents and other concerned citizens to address concerns about music in schools.

Our powerful network includes thousands of Canadian music makers, educators, supporters and facilitators – all committed to protecting quality school music programs now and into the future.

ADVOCACY IN ACTION

In late 2020, the Coalition for Music Education in Canada (CMEC) struck a dedicated committee that set out to review its long-standing history as a national advocacy organization. From this work we, devised, created and launched a new advocacy strategy in 2021, one rooted in evidence-based research that takes the best of music advocacy and will see us continue to champion music education in schools across this country.

Our National Study Report

Everything is Connected

A Landscape of Music Education

Our National Study Report is now available!

Initiated prior to the pandemic in 2019, the study was designed to reflect the ongoing status within provincial education systems. The report is being hailed as a significant expert resource for those who develop educational policy and rebuild consistent and valued music programming into core curriculum.

Advocating for inclusion, diversity, equity and access, as well as the richness and cultural significance of music education in Canada, the hope is that this report serves as a pathway to future policy development and a focus on the implementation of ‘policy to practice’ within classrooms across the country.
