Sandra Kilpatrick Jordan joins Music for All Board of Directors


INDIANAPOLIS, IN (Sept. 13, 2011) — Sandra Kilpatrick Jordan, of Sandra Kilpatrick Jordan Consulting, has been elected to the Music for All Board of Directors. Music for All is a nonprofit educational organization, whose mission is to create, provide and expand positively life-changing experiences through music for all.

Sandra Kilpatrick Jordan "Ms. Jordan is a passionate advocate of quality music education in our schools," says Gayl Doster, Chairman of the Music for All Board of Directors. "As such, she will be an outstanding resource as we continue to serve young musicians and their teachers and advocate for the inclusion of music education as part of a complete education for our young people."

Sandra Kilpatrick Jordan is an educator, advocate and entrepreneur now building bridges between business, media and education that enhance the greater good. A competitive musician in her Midwestern youth, she recalls being the youngest member of a marching band during the hottest summer on record.

She spent more than a decade developing award-winning educational media for Sesame Workshop, makers of Sesame Street. While leading the Sesame Street Music Works public awareness initiative, she returned to her love of music, becoming an associate director of public affairs and government relations for NAMM, the trade association for the music global products industry. As the coordinator of the national music education coalition, now at SupportMusic.com, she grew its participation to 250+ organizations working around the world to keep quality music education in schools.
