About AMEE Denver

Alliance for Music Education Equity

Who we are

Our Mission:

AMEE unites organizations to identify and implement actions that address diversity, equity, and inclusivity in music education in Denver in a collective, transformational, measurable, and sustainable manner.

Music can change the world, because it can change people.


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

Where there is a sustainable continuum of comprehensive music education that has a ripple effect, bringing more joy and increased well-being across the broader community.

Where we have built 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.

Our Values

Awareness of Oppression

We will be intentional and critically engage with our work, taking into account the historical and current implications and practices of Race/Class/Gender/Sexuality oppression within Music Education.


Music Education is broadly defined to include all musical cultures and genres equally in the community. We believe if all cultures and genres are represented, our musical culture is enriched.


We come to this work as equals, and prioritize the goals of the Alliance to make a meaningful impact on the music community. Together, we achieve more than we ever could alone.


We make an ongoing commitment to continue developing our personal and organizational understanding and practices of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.


We commit to approach the work of the Alliance and our communication with each other and the broader community with humility, curiosity, and transparency.
