The Michigan Music Education Association (MMEA) is an organization through which music educators at all levels and in all fields develop professionally and communicate with each other. The association works closely with other agencies and organizations involved in education. MMEA members engage in music teaching or related activities at all institutional levels from pre-school through higher education. Collegiate chapters are located on most college and university campuses.
Through its professional conferences, publications, and cooperative work with other organizations, MMEA provides leadership, advocacy, inspiration, and guidance in the area of research for PK-16 music educators in Michigan.
The Higher Education committee of MMEA highlights new scholarship relating to music teaching and learning. Research-to-Practice sessions featured at the annual Michigan Music Conference (MMC) provide educators with current research to inform and improve their programs.
