We are pleased to welcome a new, concurrent conference track, hosted in conjunction with AIME, where we invite research and active presentations for colleagues and arts educators by researchers and teachers of design, fine arts, media studies, and communication organized around the same theme.
AIME includes access to over two dozen sessions, poster presentations, lunch, and pizza at our Alumni and Friends Gathering at the Brewhaus!
Early-Bird Pricing through December 31, 2023

This event is taking place in person and includes a meal. Gluten free and vegetarian options are available.
This gathering is a place for all scholars in the field: music teachers, graduate students, undergraduate pre-service music educators, collegiate music teacher educators, music therapists, studio teachers, and retired music educators to come together and learn from and with one another, while hopefully making music together, sharing successes with their students, and inspiring one another. It is hoped that this will be a positive and uplifting day that will encourage us all and ‘recharge our batteries’ as we head into our Spring semesters and a new year full of hope and optimism for what music education at its best can mean for students of all ages!
