NAfME Call for National Conference Proposals

The National Association for Music Education (NAfME) is excited to announce next year’s National Conference, November 11-14, 2018.
Come join us once again in Dallas as we dive deeply into what we do as music educators to support our students each and every day. The following topic areas, or “Opuses,” will allow you to share your own practice, collaborate with colleagues from across the United States, and expound upon your toolkit of supports, ideas, models, and activities.
The 2018 National Conference will focus on the following areas: 
  • Amplify: Learning – Teaching Music as a Well-Rounded Subject
  • Amplify: Innovation – Cultivating Innovative Music Making
  • Amplify: Involvement – Engaging Diversity in Music Making and Teaching
  • Amplify: Inspiration – Inspiring Students through Music Creativity
  • Amplify: Technology – Teaching the Tech-Savvy Generation 

Have something of value to bring to these discussions? We encourage you to submit a proposal for a session, a hands-on workshop, and/or a poster to showcase what you do in your classroom. Please click here to view a brief video explainer.

The NAfME Professional Development Committee will be guided in the selection of sessions by the following criteria: 

  • quality of presentation (objectives and organization); 
  • innovative content that opens doors to the future of music education;
  • importance and timeliness of the topic to the field;
