Dear Music Colleagues,
You are cordially invited to encourage your students to apply for the Future Music Educators Symposium to be held on Friday, February 8, 2019, within the SCMEA Professional Development Conference in Columbia. The purpose of the symposium is to inform and encourage our best and brightest music students to consider careers in music education.
The FMES will feature workshop sessions presented by master teachers on the value and benefits of pursuing a career in music education, workshops by college professors on how to prepare for auditions and scholarships, a session with current collegiate students on what to expect and how to prepare for their college experience, attendance at an SCMEA conference session, time to visit the exhibits and college booths, and an awards presentation at our General Session on Friday morning.
The symposium is open to high school sophomore, junior, and senior students who are considering a career in music education. There will be a $30 registration fee to pay for lunch and workshop supplies. Our goal is to have 16 of our finest students participate in the Future Music Educators Symposium in February, so I hope that you will be willing to encourage your outstanding students to explore and consider careers in music education through this one-day experience.
An online application and nomination can be found by clicking here.
*During the transition into the role of coordinating this event, many items (like updating the information on the online application) fell through the cracks. The deadline for applications is Monday, January 14.
Dr. David Cudd serves as Coordinator of the Future Music Educators Symposium, and is the Coordinator of Music Education in the Cline School of Music at North Greenville University.
