About The Campaign

“The first time I held a guitar I was probably 4. The power of music even as a 4-year-old was pretty astronomical. I couldn’t wait to get in the car to go to school so that I could listen to whatever was playing on the radio…it made me feel alive.”

– Thomas Rhett

Every child has a right to a quality music education.

Music should surround us, envelope us, and provide a soundtrack for our everyday lives.

Sadly, in some parts of the country, music is being silenced in communities and within the walls of schools. Whether it be lack of funding, resources or support, more and more students are being denied access to a quality music education.

And that’s a problem.

The “It Starts With M.E.”campaign is designed to help raise awareness for the importance of music education and to create an advocacy team for our young people.  Music education helps shape our next generation to be creative, collaborative and forward-thinking leaders, while reinvigorating communities and those living there. Music class is not just a fun elective course, it is vital to a well-rounded education that develops well-rounded citizens who positively contribute to society as a whole.

We need your help. Be an ambassador and join our movement. #itstartswithME
