NAME: musical pathways

The National Association of Music Educators (N.A.M.E.) is undertaking
a survey in connection with its forthcoming National Conference on a
theme of 'Musical Pathways'. Anyone with an active interest in
music-making at any level is invited to answer a few questions about

Please take part on the survey by going to where you can either download the
questionnaire or complete it online.
