Planning a Music Monday celebration

Depending on the chemistry of your school, organization or group, you may want to plan these steps
with either your students, members or your administration. Setting Event Goals are the first steps towards casting a vision.

Setting Event Goals

Examples of event goals:
- Make the event as VISIBLE and AUDIBLE as possible
- Make the event as innovative and unique as possible – create a themed event
- Relationship-building – partner with schools from different locations in the province and country via live-streaming
- Media coverage – invite local media to your event including print, radio and TV, and write letters to the editor

Connect with the community

Examples of community partners:
- senior’s music group
- local or professional symphony or choir
- local music retailer
- media outlet
- city hall
- shopping mall
- sports team

Setting a Location

Some ideas:
- School gyms, halls, or classrooms
- Government buildings, City Hall/municipal offices
- School board buildings
- Museums or galleries
- Shopping malls
- School grounds
- City Hall grounds
- Waterfront locations
- Provincial parks

5 minutes for our funders!

The Coalition for Music Education and the Youth Take Charge program at the Department of Canadian Heritage are conducting a brief post-project survey with Music Monday and Youth4Music participants aged 7-30.  We need your help to ensure that participants have an opportunity to complete the survey – it will only take a few minutes.  Organizers should use the URLs below to distribute the survey in a controlled environment by entering the URL on each computer, laptop, or tablet located in a specific location and having participants complete the survey.  The information collected will help Coalition for Music Education and Youth Take Charge demonstrate project results.


As a thank you, the Coalition for Music and Education will give teachers and organizers an opportunity to win one of the three $250 gift certificates to be used for their music programs and to enter yourself to win one of fifteen $50 gift cards ..  After completing the survey, participants will be asked to provide the name of their school or event location and the teacher or organizer involved with their Music Monday or Youth4Music event.  The opportunity to enter the draw ends on June 20, 2017.
