What We Do

Alliance for Music Education Equity (AMEE)

The Alliance for Music Education Equity (AMEE) is the backbone organization of a collective impact effort of music organizations that are passionate about equity, diversity, and inclusivity, and are committed to cooperatively making systemic change in music education across Denver.

AMEE's vision: "We imagine a future Denver where music organizations have come together to take joint action so that all people (regardless of their resources, ethnicity, neighborhood, sexuality, gender identity, or age) can find greater self-actualization through music. We imagine a sustainable continuum of comprehensive music education that has a ripple effect, bringing more joy and increased well-being across the broader community. We imagine a cooperative, solutions-oriented network that is adaptive and responsive to the changing needs of this great city so that the power of music is unleashed in new and creative ways."

  • Create a long-term shared vision and strategy for the desired future of Music Education in Denver.
  • Engage with students and the community in meaningful conversations around equity and the importance of each voice.
