Kris Olson – ACEMM Retreat and Jamboree Featured Presenter

March is roaring in and June will be here in no time!

ACEMM is already planning for that moment when you say goodbye to the school year and blissfully push the pause button for the summer. Once the dust settles, feelings of relief and achievement are often mixed with lingering questions and ‘what if’s’ about moving ahead personally and professionally.

In the spirit of being open to inspiration, seeking fresh outlooks, and engaging in thoughtful reflection to help nurture the artistic soul that impacts our teaching and personal lives, ACEMM is proud to announce that Kris Olson will be among our featured presenters at the 1st Annual ACEMM Retreat and Jamboree! 

Come to the Catskills! ACEMM 2019 Retreat and Jamboree

“Frost Valley is a phenomenally beautiful place.”  
― Lifelong visitor

The ACEMM Retreat and Jamboree will blend the beauty of nature that Frost Valley offers with meaningful collaboration with professional educators as well as create possibilities for participants to simply be together as artists and humans sharing in community music making experiences.

ACEMM Loves You, Too!

From Monday, June 24 through Thursday, June 27, 2019, ACEMM will be hosting a getaway at the Frost Valley YMCA Camp located in the Catskills Mountains in scenic Upstate New York. During this retreat, participants will have the opportunity to truly immerse themselves in nature and get back to the elemental roots of their musicianship.

Day of Giving: Spark Grants Lighting the Way for New Possibilities

Our newest grant opportunity is the “Spark Grant”.  These small grant opportunities will fill the gaps for that special “something” teachers and students may need.  Instruments—it may be that a school concert would be enhanced by two beautiful glockenspiels.  Props–perhaps students are exploring movement, and that experience would be enhanced with black lights.  Costuming–the sky is the limit here!  Perhaps that dream is just beyond a teacher or school’s annual budget.  ACEMM and the community which shares our vision of quality, creative, music and movement education are here to help!  Spark Grants can fund projects or ideas up to $500 which are tied to elemental music and movement concepts.

Thank you for supporting ACEMM, music and movement teachers, and their students by donating today!
