NJMEA State Conference 2014 New Academy To Be Added


NJMEA will expand on the popular academies for the 2014 State Conference! After reviewing survey information submitted by our membership, the professional development committee has added new and exciting changes to this year’s conference program.

Elementary Music Academy & Technology Academy & Wind Band Academy & Choral Academy & String Academy & Jazz Academy

A program specific to each academy will include workshops by outstanding clinicians and formal concert performances by some of the finest high school and collegiate ensembles in the area.
