Throughout the process, it’s important to remember that while architects are experts in what they do, you are the expert when it comes to music education. You are the one who needs to champion the cause of an effective music facility. You need to get involved early and stay involved in the process until the end. Your knowledge and a positive attitude will ensure that the entire process is a successful one that benefits your music program well into the future.

COMMUNICATION THE KEY INGREDIENT TO A BETTER MUSIC FACILITY

Over the years we’ve worked closely with music educators, architects and facility planners as new facilities are designed and built, or old ones are renovated. We’ve seen some excellent facilities come together, and we’ve seen a lot of things that should have been done differently.

By providing an outline of what we’ve learned over the years, this Elementary Planning Guide creates an excellent forum to promote and improve communication and understanding between educators and architects.
