President's Message

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Welcome to the website for music educators of California's Central Coast!  The Central Coast Section of CMEA is one of nine sections in the state. Our board of directors volunteers their time and experience to provide perfomance oppertunities for students, while offering professional support for music educators. To this end, our website contains useful resources and pertinent details regarding our events.

We are excited to announce two new events to our calendar this year, in an effort to expand our offerings and reach students not in our traditional ensembles. First will be our Young Ensemble Showcase. This will be designed to showcase our elementary students and what the teachers are working on at that level. Next would be he Songwriters Showcase. Students who are writing music will have a chance to perform what they are creating or have another performer perform for them. More details on both events will come out as we get close to them.

As always, please feel free to reach out to me or any board member with questions, or even the need for a helping hand. We would love to be informed of ways to better support you and your students. Also, please join us for one or both of the CMEA-CCS General Meetings and Dinner in September and June. This is a great opportunity for us to connect with each other as music educators. Hope to see you there!
