The 2022 California All-State Music Educator Conference
Welcome! We are thrilled to join the California All-State Music Educator Conference in presenting its 2022 Convention.
California’s nearly 6.2 million public school students are lucky to have access to music programs led by dedicated band, choral and orchestra directors like you. We applaud how you embrace the pioneering spirit of California as you map out innovative and trailblazing ways to engage and educate your students. Thank you!
Meet Jeff Queen
The California All-State Music Educator Conference gives us an opportunity to connect with all of you and to remind you that Yamaha is your partner in music education, not just through our great instruments and professional audio products but also with resources, support and professional development. We know how difficult these past two years have been as we have navigated through these uncertain times, and we want to express our appreciation and gratitude for everyone involved in making this conference possible. We want to continue to hear about your programs and learn about you and your specific needs to see how Yamaha can partner with you to help.
Stop by the exhibit hall so we can chat, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We’ll be showing some new instruments in the booth, including the Harmony Director, the YBS-480 Baritone Saxophone, and the MS-9414 Marching Snare Drum. Sign up for the Yamaha Educator newsletter to access advocacy, professional development, information on instruments, resources, partnerships in education and more.
Have a wonderful conference!
