Celebrating 87 Years of Music Education

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 and Conference/In-Service Clinic held in November each year.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, your contributions to NMEA support music education in the state and are considered charitable, tax-deductible gifts.  Thank you for your support!

Music Teachers Presenters Network

Do you have a classroom strategy that has worked really well with you and your ensembles? Do you have a technique you've developed that you'd like to share? Maybe you've got a bag of tips and tricks that help your kids sing or play in tune, have better diction, or work together more cohesively? Consider offering to be part of the Music Teachers Presenters Network to provide a professional learning presentation at regional ESU professional learning days. NMEA and NDE Fine Arts are working together to develop a list of music teachers who would be willing to present en gratis, sharing their expertise and helping other teachers. After all, we're all better together! Registering only shows interest, not commitment.
