Music Can Do It All – Supporting Social-Emotional Needs

Music, while always inspiring and meaningful, has the power to bring people together as a community. Now, more than ever before, music has taken on the critical role of supporting the social and emotional well-being of students during these unprecedented times. The theme of the 2021 NAfME Eastern Division Conference, “Music Can Do It All – Supporting Social-Emotional Needs”, focuses on the vital need for quality music education, intentionally focused on SEL, in today’s rapidly changing and turbulent world. The 2021 Eastern Division Conference takes place in Hartford, Connecticut, one of America’s oldest and most historic cities, on the banks of the beautiful Connecticut River. Hartford is the hub of the Capitol Region’s arts and entertainment and hosts hundreds of event each year. Hartford is the place to be on April 22-25, 2021 for an incredible professional development experience!
