Members of the Elementary Section Board are committed to providing support to elementary music teachers across the state in as many ways are needed. One of the areas we have found districts fall short for music teachers is content-specific professional development opportunities. In addition to the fall NCMEA conference, the Elementary Section also offers a Spring Mini-Conference on a Saturday in late March or April. This is 1 full day of sessions presented by practicing master teachers to help further knowledge, add to music teachers’ “bag of tricks” with engaging activities, provide audition tips for Honors Chorus, and re-energize teachers with new ideas to get through the end of the school year. If you are interested in presenting a session for the mini-conference, proposals are accepted during January and February.
