KMEA and MTNA
Acronyms, acronyms! KMEA stands for Kansas Music Educators Association and MTNA signifies Music Teachers National Association. Both organizations held conferences in the past two months and MerrieNan Melodies was there! This was the fourth year we have hosted a booth at the KMEA In-Service Workshop but the first year we were able to speak at a session. This was February 27-March 1 in Wichita, KS. Connie Istas, our classroom teacher from Concordia who has been piloting the MNM classroom version, joined Nan and Merrie in the booth and for the presentation.
Then three weeks later it was off to Chicago for the MTNA 2014 National Conference and another speaking opportunity. Our booth was full and busy all three days as we talked non-stop to interested musicians. We are pleased to have made some more converts to the MNM colorful way to learn to read music.
