A Belated Welcome Back

Welcome back to the start of a new school year!  

During this past year we witnessed great innovation by our amazing Nevada music Educators while being faced with the most challenging school year of our careers.  The ability to adapt to virtual/hybrid learning and still provide great opportunities for our students was nothing short of incredible.  You provided the emotional support our students needed and showed them the power music has to bring us all closer when we couldn’t be together.  Although there is still much uncertainty with what this year will bring, the one thing I am sure of is that together, we will continue to share our passion for music and provide support for our students and to each other.  Together we have the opportunity to reimagine what music education can bring to our students and our communities.  As we embark upon this new school year, I am proud of the contributions you bring to our field and communities. Music, at the heart of a well-rounded education, is and will continue to thrive in the state of Nevada because of YOU.  From all of us at NMEA, we wish you the best as you begin this new school year and we look forward to serving you!
