1962 - "Better Bands For Nebraska" - 2014 . . . . . . . Our 53rd Year!

From NSBA President John Keith........ John Keith

Dear NSBA Membership,
Our 54th Annual Convention is next March 2015!


From NSBA Past- President Michelle Bluford........ NSBA Spring Convention
Thank you for attending the 53rd Annual March Convention. Our attendance was up and so was the energy. It was exciting to see so many people attending the clinics, the concerts and taking time renew old friendships while building new relationships.

Thank you for trusting me to lead for a year. It was an amazing journey both personally and professionally. During my presidency I hope I was able to model this quote:

“The test we must set for ourselves is not to march alone but to march in such a way that others wish to join us.”

Clinic Handouts from the 2014 Convention are still available.


Ever want to know what businesses support our state music educators? I know I do, as I like to shop local when it's possible. Here is a current listing of our NMDEA and NSBA members.



Congratulation to Joann Couton,
Instrumental Director at Bishop Neumann High School in Wahoo.
