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.

All-State Elementary Choir
At the June 2015 board meeting, the KMEA board voted to approve the KMEA All-State Elementary Choir, with the first performance to take place at the 2016 In-Service Workshop. This choir will be for singers in 3rd through 5th grades. Registration and auditions will be handled online using a system modeled after the KMEA All-State Middle Level Choir. Holly Taylor will serve as chairperson.

We anticipate having all information about this new ensemble posted online no later than August 1, and the Elementary Choir Manager (mp3 audition system) will open by September 1. The inaugural performance is tentatively scheduled for February 25, 2015 at 6:00 PM in the Century II Concert Hall in Wichita, and will be given as part of the President's Concert for the 2016 ISW. The performance time for 2017 is not yet determined.
