The mission of the Florida Music Education Association (FMEA) is to promote quality comprehensive music education for all Florida Students as a part of their complete education.

FMEA is a not-for-profit professional education association that serves and supports music education across Florida. FMEA promotes and publishes the Florida Music Director and music education research, organizes professional development programs, and broadens teachers’ knowledge and interest in their profession through affiliation with colleagues. Membership in FMEA is open to music instructors from pre-kindergarten level through college, including music supervisors, and component organization membership is available for your specific music education focus.  


FMEA membership provides music teachers and their students benefits such as elligibility for all-state ensembles, a large professional development conference, access to professional journals, advocacy on behalf of music education, and more. FMEA membership also includes membership in the National Association for Music Education (NAfME).

The FMEA membership year is from July 1 to June 30 of the following year. Members who join or renew after April 1 will be current through June 30 of the following year.
