Welcome! We are thrilled to join the Wisconsin Music Educators Association in presenting its 2021 Convention.
Wisconsin's approximately 855,000 K-12 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 traits of your state animal, the badger — independence, persistence and confidence — as you map out innovative ways to engage and educate your students. Thank you!
The Wisconsin Music Education 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 the past year and a half have been as we have navigated through these uncertain times. We want to express our appreciation and gratitude to 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.
Have a wonderful conference!
