Students are the most fundamental part of any scholastic music program. For many students, time spent around music is the most important part of the school day. While there are many factors that influence the size and make-up of school music programs, recruitment and retention plans can have an immense impact on the stability and longevity of a program. Programs that show achievement in this category demonstrate a commitment to building and sustaining a high-quality school music program.
