We are pleased to announce that MMEA will be hosting a Music College Fair during our 2022 Student Leadership Summit.  The Summit will be held on January 22, 2022 with the College Fair being held at 1-1:45pm.

This will be a virtual event, with all sessions being conducted via Zoom.

The College Fair package is $225 and includes:

  • One virtual fair booth (from 1:00-1:45 PM ET, the day of the Summit)
  • Hyperlinked sponsor logo and program description on the college fair webpage for one year
  • Hyperlinked sponsor logo on the MMEA Sponsors webpage for one year
  • Inclusion in discount/promo code email post-conference to all attendees.
  • One (1) complimentary registration, allowing access to the sessions.*

Each institution is responsible for providing their own Zoom room link.  A designee from your organization is required to facilitate the Zoom room. This includes opening the meeting, allowing participants to enter from the waiting room, monitoring the chat for questions, presenting any materials through audio/screen share, etc. There will not be an MMEA representative available to help facilitate these logistics.

*Each organization is allowed one (1) complimentary conference registration, allowing access to Summit sessions. Two educators-only breakout sessions will be offered on “Developing Student Leadership in the Classroom.”, along with an educator-only “Networking and Idea Share” at the end of the Summit. In all other sessions, we ask educators to participate as observers, allowing students to engage as participants.

We are excited to host hundreds of students from across Maryland and beyond!

Call for Compositions

​Each  year, MMEA provides composition assessment and feedback through its  Call for Compositions. The Call for Compositions is not a competition,  but rather an opportunity for students to receive personal feedback  about their compositions. The compositions are reviewed by a panel of  professional musicians, and each student receives a written evaluation  of their piece, along with a score and rating. Adjudicators highlight  strong points and make positive suggestions for future growth.

Eligibility

​The Young Composers Project eligibility rules are as follows:

  • Young Composers is open to all Maryland students enrolled in music classes/lessons, grades PK-12.
  • Each student must have their music educator certify eligibility.
  • Music educators do not need to be member of MMEA/NAfME in order to participate.
