Kodály clearly articulated that quality music education requires quality teachers. KMEIA has demonstrated a longstanding commitment to supporting teachers by providing quality professional learning experiences, resources and support opportunities. This support is most needed by pre-service and early career teachers, and KMEIA is committed to developing our future music educators.
KMEIA is pleased to announce that the National Council has approved a 2-year trial of FREE student 12-month KMEIA membership. The details are outlined below:
● 2-year trial from 1 October 2018 to 30 September 2020.
● Free 12-month membership to pre-service education students at Australian universities, either undergraduate, postgraduate, part-time or full-time. Students do not need to be music education majors.
● Costs of other KMEIA services and products are at the discretion of National Council and individual Branches and may vary.
● Evidence of student enrolment is required before the application for membership can be processed.
● Student members are Associate Members and do not have voting rights or able to hold a formal position on a committee. They can choose to pay Full Membership to have these rights.
It is hoped this initiative will make information about KMEIA services and products more accessible to pre-service teachers and is an investment in the future of Australian music education.
Please assist us in the promotion of this exciting initiative.
