AND THE PERFORMING ARTS

 
   
 
 
           

WELCOME TO ACME!

 

Arkansas Center for Music Education is a 501(c)3 tax-deductable non-profit organization whose goal is to provide quality and affordable (and free, if needed) music education in classroom instruction and instrumental and vocal ensembles to students, pre-Kindergarten to adult, who would not otherwise have such an education available to them.


It is our goal to instill in our students the desire to practice the use of music as a means by which to develop themselves wholly, as individuals and citizens, in private and in community service through performances and participation in such venues as community events and groups, churches, graduation ceremonies, public concerts, or wherever music can improve the quality of life.

Most of our instructors have or are near completion of a degree in music education. Others have significant experience in music, such as private instrument instructors.

Our classes operate from September through May. Our students present excellent programs displaying their many talents and skills learned in the classroom.

We hope to eventually have some materials and classes online for those who like what we do, but don't live near enough to attend classes in person.

So set us up in your Favorites on the Web, and then browse through our site! You can also "Like" us on Facebook!

We are offering a one-day workshop that will guide you from identifying the basic parts through terminology and hands-on training where participants will actually setup and operate sound equipment for a variety of performance situations, as well as advice on purchasing equipment to meet your needs.
