Since WVMEA believes in the importance of developing future music educators in West Virginia, it has created a scholarship. This scholarship award will recognize upcoming music educators who set high standards for themselves and offer inspiration and direction for others. See this past year's application form here.

Our Website has links to the Teach 21 Website and other WVDE Fine Arts resources and also to the U.S. Army Band Online Master Classes. There are articles about the history of music education in our state in our online archive of Notes da Capo, and state and national organizations can be found under Music Links. Information concerning WVMEA Project & Workshop Grants and the Bugle Bill fund is also available.
