The Nebraska Music Education Association is an engaged and dedicated network of music educators. As the largest organization of our kind in the state, we invite you to partner with us to reach the music education professionals and music students of Nebraska.

Our events reach a wide variety of music educators and students. We serve music professionals through content-specific professional development opportunities and resources. Our events for students reach elementary through high school students who participate in bands, choirs, jazz bands, orchestras, and Orff ensembles. We continually work to provide high-quality educational events reaching members and non-members alike in every corner of our state.

We offer four levels of sponsorship and can help you determine which level will best reach your goals. Whether you are a business aiming to meet the needs of music educators and students or a college hoping to serve these students in the future, our sponsorship recognition program has a specific benefit for you!
