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 in advance of the 2023 CMEA Clinic/Conference. Whether you are a first time conference goer or a seasoned CMEA vet, I know there will be an abundance of sessions designed to inspire innovation and enhance your skills as a music educator.

Part of CSU’s presence at CMEA includes our offering of MU 590D, continuing education credits offered as an option to you. This is a great (and relatively inexpensive) course to use for moving up the pay scale ladder or towards recertification hours. And, for the first time since 2020, I’ll be at the conference to answer any questions you might have; I’d like to encourage you to stop by our booth and say hi, it’s always great to put a face to a name.

Registration for CSU CMEA Continuing Educations (MU 590D) can be found here. Registrations and assignments should be completed by February 15, 2023 (though a large majority of students will register before/during the workshop and submit their assignment one to two days after).

The syllabus and MU 590D assignment should answer most questions but please feel free to reach out 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.
