WMEA PARTICIPATING IN MUSIC MATTERS LICENSE PROJECT

MusicAid Northwest, a nonprofit organization formed to support music education statewide, is going to approach the Washington State Legislature this session and ask that a special license plate be designed to be sold, with all profits retuning to music education programs in the schools of Washington.

MusicAid Northwest is sponsoring fundraisers to pay the required fee needed before special plates can be issued. They also need 3,500 signatures indicating an interest in purchasing these plates ($35/set/year).

As these funds will revert to support music programs of WMEA members statewide, WMEA is asking members and friends to acquire one or more signatures on the attached form and sending those pages to MusicAid Northwest as instructed on the form.

The first deadline was February 1. But you don’t have to stop then. Send in what you have by that date, but keep gathering signatures and sending them in every week until the Legislature is adjourned or until we post a notice “Mission Accomplished.”

You can download this pdf and print as many copies as needed. Thank you.


WMEA YELLOW PAGES

WMEA's Yellow Pages contains contact information for music stores, private teachers, adjudicators, travel companies, music camps, recording companies - if it's related to music education in Washington, you'll find it in the WMEA Yellow Pages.

Are you interested in advertising on WMEA's Yellow Pages?  Follow this link to learn more about making your services known to the state music education community.

Long-range master calendar of WMEA events

The Washington Music Educators Association provides and promotes educational resources for music educators and students in our public and private schools and colleges. Opportunities for teachers to improve their skills exist through the biennial conferences, periodic in-service sessions and publications.

Students are showcased at 22 regional solo and ensemble contests and at our State Solo and Ensemble Contest, by participation in our sixteen WMEA All-State performing groups, in clinics and workshops at our conferences and at a variety of statewide in-service sessions.

WMEA believes a good music education is a critical component of a basic education for all students.
