Message from your District President

Greetings Southeast KMEA Members,

Welcome to the 2012-13 school year and to the SE KMEA District. Music is a powerful thing. I am looking forward to experiencing the power of music within the SE KMEA District this school year. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to serve as President for the SE District. I look forward to serving you for the next two years.

As we begin a new year, let us strive to challenge our students to new levels through our daily rehearsals and performances. As educators, let us also strive to keep our teaching skills fresh and vibrant and accept the challenge to lead by true example. As educators, we must be life long learners. The best directors are the directors who are constantly trying new concepts and are open to new and fresh ideas.

I hope you will take advantage of the opportunities that are offered through the Southeast KMEA District. We have a great group of directors throughout our district who do an excellent job of promoting music within the school and our various communities. Take the time this year to get to know some of the directors in our district and experience some of the great things they are doing within their programs. And most of all....let us experience the power of music together this year!


Gae Phillips
SE KMEA District President
