About Music for All
Music for All is one of the largest and most influential national music education organizations in support of active music-making. Music for All is unique in that it combines programming at a national level with awareness campaigns, research and advocacy. Bands of America (BOA) and Orchestra America are programs of Music for All, with a 33-year heritage in providing spectacular educational experiences for instrumental music programs and students.

Music for All is also one of the nation's leading music and arts education research, public policy and advocacy organizations, addressing the growing concern that public policies have created barriers for many schools and communities to provide music and arts programs as part of a basic education for all children.

From humble beginnings in 1976 with a single summer workshop for teachers, Music for All programs are today recognized as the pinnacle of educational programming for high school instrumental music programs nationwide. Music for All reaches a vast number of people; each year, more than 300,000 people attend their events, 100,000 teens participate, 150,000 people subscribe to online services and one million are impacted by our research and public affairs initiatives.

Music for All's programs include fall marching band Regional Championships and the Grand National Championships, held across the country each fall. The Music for All National Festival is held each spring in Indianapolis and features the National Concert Band Festival, Orchestra America National Festival, National Percussion Festival and the Honor Band of America, Honor Orchestra of America and the Jazz Band of America. The Summer Symposium draws 2,000 teen music students and teachers from more than 40 states and several countries to a week-long music camp.

Music for All is committed to expanding the role of music and the arts in education, to heightening the public's appreciation of the value of music and arts education, and to creating a positive environment for the arts through societal change. Working with leading national authorities and other non-profit organizations, Music for All invests resources and personnel in projects that expand across to public school music and arts programs, research and advocacy and public awareness efforts to support music and arts education.

Music for All is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational organization.
