CONNECTICUT MUSIC EDUCATORS ASSOCIATION

CMEA Music Library

In addition to supplying music for our festival ensembles, the CMEA Music Library is available to current members as a lending library. Members may borrow up to two titles at a time between November 1 and June 15 during the school year.

If you would like to borrow music from the CMEA library: Read the below qualifications and borrowing procedure carefully, and then log in to this website and the Lending Library Application Form will appear to the right on desktop or at the bottom of the page on mobile.

Festival Committees should not use the lending library form to order music for the festival ensembles. Instead login to access the Committee Forms section under Student Events and complete the Festival Music Order Form found there.

  • Borrower must be a current member of CMEA.
  • Only two titles may be borrowed. These must be returned before any others are issued.
  • Music must be used for educational, not-for-profit purposes only.
  • Copying of music is prohibited.
  • A use date must be specified at time of lending.
  • A non refundable postage and handling fee of $15.00 per title must be paid to the
