United States

The mission of the Colorado Music Educators Association is to serve the educational needs of its members and to provide growth opportunities to music educators regardless of their experience in the profession. Each year the annual music clinic/conference is packed with sessions that will benefit the new teacher as well as those finishing their college experience as they prepare for that first job. The clinicians and presenters at the conference are nationally and many times internationally known which provides top-level strategies, techniques, and inspiration for those veteran teachers and educators looking for that next step. It is always a pleasure to see the many retired teachers in attendance at the Broadmoor each January remaining active and renewing meaningful friendships.
