Remote Learning Resources

NMEA wants to do all it can to support teachers during this health crisis.  If you should find yourself having to teach remotely, we are beginning a list of sources that may be of help.  Please also feel free to contact us if you need any additional help and we will do our best.  Collaboration and cooperation are just two of the great things we learn from a great music education - let us know if you hear of any great resources we can share with the membership.  Keep in mind to check with your administration to make sure there are not any restrictions for your students in using these resources.



In response to COVID-19 closing PreK-12 and university campuses across the country, NAfME is providing free access to NAfME Academy for any professors needing additional resources for their undergraduate students studying to become music educators.

NAfME Academy offers dozens of hours of peer-reviewed, professional development webinars specifically developed for music educators by music educators. After viewing a webinar and completing a brief quiz (75% or higher), a certificate of completion will be generated. Click here to learn more.

Professional Learning Community Webinars

NAfME has developed a series of Professional Learning Community webinars to deliver timely and targeted topics presented by experts during COVID-19. This format offers educators the opportunity to engage with webinar presenters live, as well as reference recordings at a later time. All webinars are free and open to the public. Click here to view the live webinar schedule, register, and to view past webinar recordings.

NAfME, along with the National Federation of State High Schools Associations (NFHS), recently released their 2020 Fall Guidance for Music Education. Click here to download the PDF.
