Please fill out this Google form- it is being used as a register of all music teachers in Northeast Missouri! We want to have as accurate a registry so that we can mentor new teachers in our district as well as those who may not be traditional music teachers (ie: theater teacher teaching band, or math teacher teaching choir etc…) Click the link below!

Dear Northeast Music Educators,

Fellow colleagues! It’s almost time to get going on the new school year and while some of us are ready to go I am sure that there are also those of us dreaming of an extended summer! Your NEMMEA board met last Saturday to tidy up the years events, figure out who is new in and around the district and take care of other needed business for our district. 

If you are a new teacher you need to check into the MMEA Mentoring Conference.  This conference is a great way to start your teaching career and make many connections with other new music teachers in the state. Your district has probably assigned you a mentor, but you also want someone that is in your field.  You may also contact Lisa Dobbs, Mentoring Chair ldobbs@nfranklin.k12.mo.us.  If you are aware of any new teachers in the area we also ask you to pass their name along to Lisa.  

Congratulations to the following ensembles for being selected to play at the 2023 MMEA Conference!

  • Central Methodist University Concert Band- Skip Vandelicht
  • Fayette High School Concert Band- Elizabeth Betts and Lisa Dobbs
  • University of Missouri Wind Ensemble- Brian Silvey
  • Sunnydale Adventist Academy Chorale- Joseph Choi
  • University of Missouri-Columbia University Singers- R. Paul Crabb

Your NEMMEA Executive Board Officers are here to serve.  Do not hesitate to contact them as you are preparing for events this school year.
