The California Music Educators Association (CMEA) is a Federated unit of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME). Membership is open to all music educators working in public and private schools, colleges, and universities in California. The purposes of the association are: to promote access to a sequential standards-based music education for all Pre K through Grade 12 students taught by fully qualified music educators; to support new and improve existing music programs; to promote quality pre-service and in-service teacher preparation programs; and, to create a greater awareness of the value of music education through partnerships with other associations and advocacy among state and local agencies.
