The SMU Music Educators Workshops are annual professional development and learning opportunities offered for music educators and students of music through the Music Division of SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts. The Music Division of Meadows is an accredited institutional member of both the National Association of Schools of Music and the Texas Association of Music Schools.

Adult students who earn graduate credit for participation in the Music Educators Workshops may apply the credit to a Master of Music in Music Education degree, once accepted into the masters program.
