OMEA....supporting quality Music Education for ALL

Through its professional development, resources, publications and leadership, the Ontario Music Educators’ Association advocates for, promotes and encourages quality music education for every child.

Advocacy

The OMEA supports every child in Ontario receiving a quality music education taught by a qualified music specialist teacher. OMEA advocates for this with Provincial organizations to highlight issues relating to delivering quality music education and the benefits of music for all students. Students learning music build character, learn more about themselves and develop skills that are applicable that prepare them for success in life.

Communication

The OMEA works to communicate with our membership and partner organizations using regular and meaningful tools including electronic and traditional means. This interactive communication furthers our mission of providing support for music educators and quality music programs in Ontario.

Outreach

The OMEA connects with and supports music educators through our website, quarterly journal, special publications and E-newsletter. OMEA conferences, which are supported by our corporate partners and industry, and workshops provide music teachers with resources, mentorship, and networking opportunities to support their professional learning. OMEA is affiliated with the Canadian Music Educators’ Association and is the subject association that represents Music Education with the Ontario Ministry of Education.

Professional Support

The OMEA supports Ontario educators by sharing instructional strategies, resources, and best practices through workshops, conferences, journals, and our website. We are the leading Professional Learning Network for Music Educators in Ontario.
