PMEA 2011 Here We Come!

So I am so freaking excited for the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association Conference this year in Hershey. It is a really great experience and I really learned a lot last year. But this PMEA is especially exciting because 4 other Grove City College Music Education majors and myself will be live blogging the entire time. Yep. That’s right. You can basically be there without actually being there. Really exciting right? Right. So here’s what’s going to happen.

Get On the Website

Let’s be smart about this. If you’re not going to PMEA, because you either don’t live in Pennsylvania or you are incredibly lame, you should at least go to to find all of the different sessions and their corresponding live blogs. It may sound complicated, but its really not. Just go and find what sounds interesting to you and click on it. Or, if you’re really cool, just go to my page and stay there the whole time.

Remember When it Is

If you’re really honest with yourself, you’ll realize that you are a forgetful person. So once you find a session that you are interested in, click on the link and go to the live blog page. There you can sign up to get a reminder for one day before PMEA, which starts on April 14, 2011. Even if you are absolutely positive that you won’t forget, sign up to be reminded. Because life is crazy, and you are not going to want to miss this event.


Seriously you should be pumped. This is going to be a great opportunity for you to learn a lot for FREE! I’d like to thank Grove City College, specifically Dr. Joseph Pisano, for providing the funds for us to have internet access at the conference so we can bring this to you. This is a huge event and it is great for them to support us in this way. And, while you’re waiting, go visit the other live blogger’s blogs:

Andy Ritenour – Future Music Educators

Brittany Bell – Brittany’s Adventures in Musicland

Elizabeth Heist – Music Education Highlights From an Undergrad

Ryan Dore – The Journey from Undergrad to Band Director

It’s going to be a great conference and I look forward to sharing all of the information I learn with you guys. So check out the landing page, check out my page, get a reminder, and get psyched!



  1. I can’t wait to follow along next week, Emily! I’ll be blogging about the GCC PMEA live-blogs at next week 🙂

    • Thanks Andy! I’m pretty psyched about it as well.
