Advocacy As It Relates To Musicians

This week I would like to focus on the topic of advocacy. Advocacy in the most general sense can be interpreted as the act or process of supporting a cause. The concept of advocacy is particularly significant for the field of music. Learning to act as an advocate for your services as a music educator, music therapist, or music perforer will greatly assist in your development as a professional. I discovered several articles and podcasts related to the topic of advocacy. I would like to share with you one video in particular that discusses advocacy and its importance. Although the video specifically talks about advocacy as it pertains to music therapists, the same concepts apply to other areas within the field of music. Below you will find the video, along with a couple of informative blogs/articles.
