The Collegiate Music Educators Connect with Students and Community

By Jewlina Matthews

The Collegiate Music Educators at West Liberty is an organization comprised of pre-service music educators in conjunction with the National Association for Music Education (NAfME). The NAfME group has been more involved on campus as of 2013. The group is student run with the help of advisor Professor Patrick Garrett. The Collegiate Music Educators at West Liberty are highly involved in the Region One Solo and Ensemble Festival and the Tri-State Honor Band and Choir experiences.

The organization prides itself in making connections with students who are involved in music. It strives to promote music in our schools and communities, assist students in reaching their highest potential as musicians, encourage the process of lifelong education in all facets of music, and impart the importance of music in the life of all people.
