Kansas Music Educators Association 2022 Professional Development Conference
Welcome! We are thrilled to join the Kansas Music Educators Association in presenting its 2022 Professional Development Conference.
Kansas’ nearly 470,000 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 Kansas as you map out innovative and trailblazing ways to engage and educate your students. Thank you!
Meet Wes Kreitz
The Kansas Music Educators Association 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 I want to express my 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 and say hi to me in the exhibit hall. 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.
If you need help or have additional questions, please feel free to reach out directly to me at email@example.com. 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!
