Various professional organizations associated with music and music education provide opportunities for students to gain pre-professional training and increased awareness in their chosen field.
National Association for Music Education (NAfME)
The National Association for Music Education Collegiate (formerly CMENC) is the professional organization for students interested in music education or the teaching of music. It is affiliated with the National Association for Music Education (MENC) and the Florida Collegiate MENC (FCMENC), part of the Florida Music Educators Association (FMEA). Members receive the national journals, the Music Educators Journal, published by NAfME and the state journal, The Florida Music Director, published by FMEA and the Florida Music Teacher Association.
