The Louisiana Music Educators Association (LMEA) is divided into nine districts. District IX includes St. Helena, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, and Washington parishes. Read more about each district


In District IX, we promote quality music education by providing high level performance opportunities for both the individual music student and the school ensemble. Participation in all events is co-ordinated through the school’s ensemble director and requires the director’s membership in LMEA.
