Music Education Matters Summit

This Summit is provided through the generous support of the Country Music Association (CMA) Foundation via National 4-H Council, and is held this year July 17-19, 2018, at Rock Eagle 4-H Center. The Music Education Matters Summit provides an experience for youth across Georgia, and around the nation, to practice and grow in music education, network and learn from industry professionals, and develop as a leader, team member, and performer. The Summit offers youth the opportunity to select one of five tracks:

  • Vocal
  • Instrumental
  • Songwriting
  • Dance; and
  • Musical Theatre

Each track is designed to focus not only on skills development, but mentorship and career exploration with industry professionals. Additionally this year, adults will be offered an supplementary workshop to discuss the processes used to launch, organize, and sustain a 4-H Performing Arts program. The facilitators will discuss the “nuts and bolts” of a Performing Arts group including auditions, travel considerations, funding, rehearsals, volunteer recruitment, and marketing.  Registration fees include meals and lodging.  4-Hers and their families are responsible for transportation to and from the event.
