Maryland Music Educators Association (MMEA) seeks to provide high-quality, peer-reviewed
professional development opportunities for all learners. We do so by hosting the following conferences:
July Virtual Conference (virtual)
MMEA produces and partners with other statewide music education serving organizations across the United States to co-host a virtual conference. This event focuses on overarching topics affecting all educators in the field, regardless of teaching level or content area. Attendees learn from experts and leaders across the country during the keynote, breakout, and research sessions.
Young Professionals Mentoring & Networking Conference (virtual)
This event will connect peers from the western panhandle to the eastern shore to develop meaningful, professional relationships, serving as a lasting support system. Attendees will engage in sessions on the following topics: common early-career challenges, teacher licensure, career path, developing a personal code of conduct, transitioning from student to teacher, and personal finance.
Student Leadership Summit (virtual)
Participants learn from national and local leaders in the music education and arts industry fields. All students grades 7-12 and undergraduates are invited to attend. Session topics include advocacy, conflict resolution, communication, diversity, equity, inclusion, and access; self-care; time management; and more. Community colleges, public and private colleges, universities, and conservatories join us for a college fair. This Summit includes an educator’s track to discuss leader development in the classrooms.
Annual Inservice Conference (in-person)
Current and future educators across the state are encouraged to join us annually in Baltimore for an inservice conference. Attendees will learn directly applicable, pedagogy-based, proven practices from fellow Marylanders and national clinicians. This event occurs simultaneously with the Senior All State weekend.
MMEA is dedicated to ensuring all those seeking resources have the access they need. As such, attendees may choose a “Pay What You Can” option or a recommended registration rate.
Membership is not required for any professional learning event or student adjudication opportunity hosted by MMEA.
