Initiatives

MMEA has undertaken several significant ongoing initiatives. These include:

  • student assessment (common music assessment tasks),
  • resources for teacher evaluation,
  • a mentoring program (Embracing the New Music Educator), and
  • advocacy initiatives.

This section of our site includes information on all of these initiatives, as well as links to the National Association for Music Education website that may provide additional information.
