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 and your loved ones safe and healthy during this challenging time.

Thank you for all of the work you have done to keep the foundation of music education in tact during the pandemic. You have embraced this daunting task and risen to the challenge, and I could not imagine the state of music education without your collective work and sacrifice of time and routine.

I am excited to see you in person at the annual CMEA conference in 2022. 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, 2022.

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