Rhode Island Music Education Association



The mission of NAfME (formerly MENC), the National Association for Music Education, is to advance music education by encouraging the study and making of music by all.

Founded in 1915, the state organization of NAfME is the Rhode Island Music Education Association (RIMEA). As NAfME represents the nation's music educators, RIMEA represents the state music educators in a more personal and intimate manner. RIMEA is a non-profit organization that plays a significant role in representing all phases of music education in the schools, colleges, and universities within the state of Rhode Island.

Here you can find information on joining RIMEA.
