The third annual Best 100 Communities for Music Education Survey has been collecting responses online at, the official Website of the American Music Conference.

The survey is in the process of analyzing music program specifics, class size, financial data and other indicators to measure the overall quality of music education in our nation's communities. Private and independent instruction, as well as public school music programs are tallied into each community's score; smaller communities are evaluated on par with larger ones.

In addition to the AMC, the survey is also sponsored by the Music Teachers National Association, the National School Boards Association, the Perseus Development Corporation, VH1 Save the Music Foundation and Yamaha Corporation of America.

According to AMC executive director and NAMM International Music Products Association president Joe Lamond, the first two years of the study showed results that substantiated that "there are great music programs all over the country, in large communities and small."

The Best 100 will be announced later this spring.
