Embracing the New Music Educator (Mentoring)

The Eastern District would like to invite all new teachers, not so new teachers, and veteran teachers to join our mentor program! We gather several times during the year to have professional development sessions, watch concerts, and discuss our practice.

This year the Embracing the New Music Educator program will be combined with our Peer Concert calendar. Please join us for one or more of the following events! If you would like to volunteer one of your concerts please visit the MMEA-ED website.
