Research on the state of classical and educational music in America shows declines and growth within its various disciplines. This article looks at what is called "the good old days," concert attendance, and statistics of the musical arts from the 1970s to the present. The paper encompasses think tank organizations such as the Association of Performing Arts Presenters, who brainstorm on the theme of change and opportunity in American education as well as society's support of the arts. Presented are global issues, which compound the complexity of the situation, and American educators who survey the ecological change of classical music.
