Advertising Opportunities

The Nebraska Music Education Association is pleased to offer rates and reservations available for advertising space in the Nebraska Music Educator magazine. We appreciate our advertisers and look forward to working with you in the future!

The Nebraska Music Educator is published three times per year (July, October, March). The July issue features important back to school information while the October issue previews the annual All-State conference/clinic. Our March issue recognizes outstanding teaching throughout the state, and emphasizes advocacy, such as "Music Education Week."

The magazine is mailed to active NMEA members, teacher education institutions, NAfME Collegiate student chapter members, advertisers, libraries, individual subscribers and is exchanged with similar publications across the country. Current circulation is approximately 1,550 copies per issue.
