Santa Fe Waldorf School's Music Program
Music is an essential element of the Waldorf curriculum. In grade school, children play flutes by ear, carefully listening and watching their teachers while growing accustomed to the sound of music which supports their capacity of concentration. In Grade 4, they take up stringed instruments and begin their journey of learning musical notation and choral skills, building towards performance, collaboration and composition through Middle and into High School.

Platinum Music Awards
The Platinum Music Awards celebrate the lifetime achievement of New Mexico’s music heroes and icons, and are given to musicians, music supporters, and music organizations or businesses that have demonstrated the highest level of achievement and have contributed significantly to the musical culture of New Mexico. 

New Mexico residents nominate musicians, composers, music related businesses (music stores, studios, production facilities, record labels, etc.), and organizations (performance venues, groups and troupes) during and then a select committee meets to determine the six honorees.

In addition to honoring six major music figures, some of New Mexico’s best and most diverse musical talent performs in this unique musical variety show.
