Jennifer Kauffman, PRESIDENT

Welcome to MMEA and MGMTA - we are here for you! It is a true gift and unique experience to introduce young students to the world of music and then watch them grow as musicians.  Whether you are a veteran, novice, or future music educator, MGMTA can help equip you with the resources and support needed to be a successful music educator. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions, ideas or suggestions for MGMTA. I look forward to serving as the President of MGMTA. It is my goal to assist in providing relevant, meaningful and applicable professional development for general music teachers of Maryland.  

Contact: and with questions.

Would you like to get involved? If you are already a member of MMEA/MGMTA and would like to become more involved, you can volunteer as a Presider at one of the upcoming conferences. Responsibilities include introducing and assisting the presenter by reading short biographical information, circulating handouts, and monitoring the room. Being a Presider is a great way to grow professionally, begin to take a leadership role, and become more involved with MMEA. Please contact me by email if you have questions or are interested in presiding for an upcoming conference.
