WSU Chapter (275) of the National Association for Music Education


National Association for Music Education (NAfME), among the world’s largest arts education organizations, is the only association that addresses all aspects of music education. NAfME advocates at the local, state, and national levels; provides resources for teachers, parents, and administrators; hosts professional development events; and offers a variety of opportunities for students and teachers. The Association orchestrates success for millions of students nationwide and has supported music educators at all teaching levels for more than a century.

Since 1907, NAfME has worked to ensure that every student has access to a well-balanced, comprehensive, and high-quality program of music instruction taught by qualified teachers. NAfME’s activities and resources have been largely responsible for the establishment of music education as a profession, for the promotion and guidance of music study as an integral part of the school curriculum, and for the development of the National Standards for Arts Education.

When you join NAfME, you also join the Utah Music Educators Association (UMEA) and the WSU Student Chapter #275. Every year in February our chapter participates in the Utah Music Educators Association’s Professional Conference. This is an opportunity for music students to participate in a professional music education conference and meet teachers that work throughout the state of Utah. There are also national clinicians that offer workshops for in-service teachers as well as special events for university students. The WSU School of Music feels it is very important for music education students to participate in this conference, so the department subsidizes the cost. By joining NAfME, WSU students have the opportunity to participate in a professional conference at a highly reduced rate.
