SMEI Advocacy

The SMEI acts as an advocacy group for music education and we aim to raise the profile and status of music education in Ireland on a national and international level.  Our aim is to present a strong, unified voice in support of music education activities, while recognising the diversity of individuals, organisations/associations and institutions involved in music education in Ireland.  We also actively encourage professional development initiatives in music education and we would be delighted to hear from members about the way that they are developing their practice and engaging in music education.


The SMEI also represents Irish music educators as an ISME National Affiliate (INA) for the International Society for Music Education (ISME) and a number of our members participate in ISME events worldwide.
