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.
