OkMEA Start Up Summit – August 26, 2023

The OkMEA Start Up Summit is designed to foster a network of early-career music educators across Oklahoma. Each year, OkMEA will host a Summit in the first weeks of the academic year. We invite clinicians from across the state and beyond to lead active and invigorating sessions on mentoring, area-specific music instruction, and social gatherings. The Summit affords novice teachers opportunities to learn, grow, and build professional relationships with their colleagues. Please join us for this “kick-off” event to both your school year and your career as a music educator!


Registration: $20
Collegiate Seniors, First Year Teachers,
and Veteran Teachers are welcome!
