New Music Teacher Handbook
The KMEA New Music Teacher Handbook
is an online resource for new and
veteran teachers alike. Resources for handbooks, lesson planning, curriculum
assessment, rehearsal techniques, and classroom management can all be
found in one place.
Music is an integral, vibrant part of life. The lifelong process
of learning, performing, creating, and appreciating music brings
meaning and richness to our heritage and culture. The Kansas Music
Educators Association is an organization of music educators committed
to the concept that the study of music is a positive influence in
the lives of individuals and society as a whole.

2014-2015 Instrumental Live Auditions will be held January 10, 2015. The weather contingency date will be one week later on January 17, 2015.
Important reminders about State Instrumental Live Audition registration
- Instrumental Directors... Make sure that you create Audition Entries for your students who are auditioning for State Instrumental Live Auditions.
Simply entering a student's name or "Instrument Preferences" does not register a student for an audition.
- The audition fee Invoice is accessible under the Auditions tab (after auditions have been saved).
- All directors who have students participating in the instrumental live auditions are required to participate in the audition process.
All directors will be assigned a job.
If you have a job preference, please contact the state band chairs as soon as possible (1234band at ksmea.org or 56band at ksmea.org).
Job assignments will be sent out to directors before Christmas.
- For technical questions about the All-State Group Manager, contact the KMEA Webmaster (webmaster at ksmea.org).
