Celebrating 80 Years of Music Education in Nebraska

Our mission: To foster life-long learning and active music-making by all Nebraskans!

The Nebraska Music Education 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. NMEA's leadership and staff work hard to advocate for music education and bring you important information concerning the music education profession.

Sing Across Nebraska!

Students in Nebraska schools were asked to sing “Happy Birthday Nebraska” during a special Statehood Ceremony on March 1, 2017.

Results - drum roll, please . . .
there were 60,587 voices counted from 194 locations across Nebraska. Locations besides schools included Veteran's Homes, Rehabilitation Centers, Nursing Homes, Daycares, Families, Museums and Individuals. The NE150 planning committee has now dubbed this a Legacy event. Well done, Nebraska!
