Celebrating 79 Years of Music Education in Nebraska
Our mission: To foster life-long learning and active music-making by all Nebraskans!
The Nebraska Music Educators Association (NMEA) is a non-profit organization of music educators founded in 1937. To achieve the goals of our mission, we provide continuing education opportunities, recognition, scholarships and advocacy to our educators. For their students, we offer education, auditions, competitions and performance opportunities. All members and member students are eligible to attend the annual All-State Conference and Clinic held in November each year.
The Benefits of Membership
In addition to the opportunity to participate in the annual All-State Conference and Clinic, your NMEA membership allows you to connect and network with other music educators across the state. The NMEA leadership and staff work hard to advocate for music education and bring you important information concerning the music education profession.
