A Message from the Instructor

On behalf of the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance at Colorado State University, I hope this message finds you well.

I am excited to see you at the annual CMEA conference in 2023. CSU will once again offer continuing education credits for you. As you know, this is a great (and relatively inexpensive) course to use for moving up the pay scale ladder or towards recertification hours.

Like last year, CSU Online will make absolutely no exceptions for late registrations. My advice is to register well in advance so that we can troubleshoot any issues prior to the hard registration deadline of Feb. 15, 2023.

Please contact me with any specific questions regarding this year’s CMEA continuing education credits through CSU. Again, thank you for everything you do to keep music alive in the hearts and minds of a future generation of leaders, artists, and music patrons.
