  • the basic truths and principles that underlie the role of music in human life;
  • the philosophy and function of the music education profession;
  • the professional interests of members involved in the local and state levels;
  • the knowledge and practices of the professional music educator as facilitated through the chapter, collegiate membership, and SCMEA activities.
