How can our professional music associations best serve music students and music educators? What aspects of service to the music education profession are best done collectively? What services are best provided by the distinct organizations dedicated to supporting their discipline? (i.e. band, choral, string, guitar etc.) These were the questions that Manitoba music teachers addressed when they began the process of restructuring over a decade ago.
The result is a Manitoba Music Educators' Association (MMEA) that is an effective, unified and authentic advocacy voice for 750+ music educators in Manitoba.
