D.C. Fly-In 2016

Each spring, NAMM members gather in Washington, D.C. to “stand up for music education” and to serve as advocates for the right of every child to learn and grow with music. With the passage of the federal education law –Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) – NAMM members, artists and other industry influencers will meet with their Congressional Representatives to thank them for passing ESSA, and to reinforce the importance of music being designated as significant to a well-rounded education. As ESSA guides state and local education policy, NAMM members have the opportunity to learn from representatives from the U.S. Department of Education and other national leaders on how ESSA will influence state and local education policies over time.
