National Conference

2019 OAKE NATIONAL CONFERENCE
Columbus, Ohio 
| March 21 – 24, 2019 

WHAT IS THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE? Immerse yourself in Kodály education by attending our annual conference!  Each year OAKE hosts a Conference for professional development and honor choirs. From coast to coast, OAKE has hosted hundreds of sessions with thousands of teachers, students and guests. The OAKE National Conference is held in an OAKE Division and hosted by a local OAKE Chapter. 

HOW DO I REGISTER?

Go to the Rates and Registration page for Conference Rates, extras, and links to register. 


HOW DO I ADVOCATE TO ATTEND?
Music is officially considered part of a well-rounded education of every student. School and district administrators may even have resources to support professional development for teachers. Below you’ll find a template to ask your administrator for support. 
OAKE welcomes your administrator to attend and experience the conference for themselves! We will host a special breakfast and introduction to the Kodály approach and why it matters for students.
