Welcome! We are thrilled to join the Kansas Music Educators Association in presenting its 2021 Virtual In-Service Workshop.

Kansas’ nearly 470,000 public school 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 industrious spirit of Kansas as you map out innovative and inspiring ways to engage and educate your students. Thank you!

Welcome from Wes Kreitz

The Kansas 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 this past year has been as we have navigated through these uncertain times, and I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for everyone involved in making this virtual 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.
