The man who disparages music as a luxury and non-essential is doing the nation an injury. Music now, more than ever before, is a national need.

But what's in it for you?

Member Benefits

Professional Development

KCMEA facilitates events throughout the year for music educators to hone their skills.  Our fall conference provides sessions for educators in all levels and disciplines, and our FREE Winter Warm Up conducting sessions help choral and instrumental directors develop their conducting in a masterclass-type setting.

Networking

We often forget that our colleagues can offer us incredible support.  KCMEA membership creates opportunity for music educators to meet each other, to share ideas, and to grow together not only professionally, but as a community.

Support

KCMEA wants to help you, as a music educator, and the students you are teaching.  It's why we facilitate a scholarship program for private lessons, it's why we provide you with a list of established private lesson instructors for your students, and it's why we organize Fall Conference, Winter Warm Up, and other professional development opportunities.
