Arranged by: Mark Reid
As a relatively young member of the music education community, Mr. Reid’s accomplishments are already quite impressive and one cannot help but think that he is destined to be the catalyst of several success stories of the future. As a post-secondary student at the University of Victoria, he helped to develop the Student Music Educators Association. Upon graduation and the start of his teaching career, he found a position with the British Columbia Music Educators Association (BCMEA) and quickly rose through the ranks to become president. Under his leadership, the BCMEA saw its participation increase to levels not seen in decades. Mark now serves as President of the Canadian Music Educators Association, allowing him the opportunity to further inspire and develop resources for fellow music teachers on a national level.
