PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS FOR MUSIC EDUCATORS

 

NAFME–The National Association for Music Educators:

Music students have a unique opportunity while preparing to become active music educators by joining the Collegiate Division of NAFME (formerly MENC).. Founded in 1907 with 64 members, today’s NAFME membership has grown to more than 130,000 including active music teachers, university faculty and researchers, college students preparing to be teachers, high school honor society members and Music Friends. Formerly Music Educators National Conference, the Association’s name was changed in 2011 to NAFME-The National Association for Music Education to better reflect its mission.
Wayland’s NAFME chapter is active on- and off-campus, and participates in local and state activities. Student membership is highly encouraged for students who are music education majors.
