A Voice for Music Educators
MMEA works together with our partner organizations to provide high quality professional development opportunities for all music educators.
MMEA supports ongoing curriculum and course development led by the Department of Education and Training.
MMEA meets regularly with the Minister and Deputy Minister of Education to discuss issues related to Music Education.
MMEA meets regularly with the Provincial Arts Steering Committee, the Canadian Music Educators’ Association, the Alliance for Arts Education and other provincial and national organizations that focus on music and arts education.
Building Leadership Capacity
Together with the Association of Music Administrators of Manitoba, we organize an annual Conference of music education leaders representing school divisions from across the province. The conference “Leading Change in Music Education in Manitoba” is held annually in late October the day before TEMPO: Manitoba Music Conference.
Our goal is that every school division will designate someone to assume a leadership role for music education within their division.
