Who We Are
The Kentucky Music Educators Association is a 501(c)3 organization consisting of over 1,000 professional music educators at all levels from kindergarten to the university level who are dedicated to the cause of music education in Kentucky. Included are in-service, pre-service and retired music educators. Associated with NAfME: The National Association For Music Education, KMEA serves as a voice for Kentucky’s music educators.
KMEA maintains an active involvement with the Kentucky Coalition for Arts Education, an affiliation with such groups as the the Kentucky Art Education Association; the Kentucky Theater Association; and the Kentucky Association for Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance; and the Kentucky Center – all dedicated to the improvement of arts education in the Commonwealth.
Parents and other advocates for music education in Kentucky can find support in the activities of KMEA and NAfME. NAfME provides considerable information of interest to advocates for the promotion of music education in Kentucky’s schools.
