This annual four-day convention is the largest of its kind in the nation. With over 29,000 attendees (including over 10,200 active music educators), you’ll experience unparalleled opportunities for professional development, inspiration, networking, and the best buys on anything the music industry has to offer. This year's event will include a one-day preconference of technology clinics hosted on Wednesday by TI:ME the Technology Institute for Music Educators.
Our expected 29,000+ attendees include music educators of kindergarten through college levels, college student members, high school students planning careers in music education, performers, exhibitors, family members, and other visitors. Our convention attracts music educators from around the world!
We can boast being the premier music educators convention, because we offer:
No other music educators convention offers as many clinics and performances to help you develop your craft as a music educator. Future music educators can begin connecting with other music educators and attend clinics designed to help them in their education and preparation for the profession. The best musicians in our state perform throughout the four days, and our auditioned All-State ensembles bring our incredible event to a memorable close with their Saturday concerts.
