PASMAE conferences move around the continent, thus offering an opportunity to combine your music educational and personal interests with visits to countries you may otherwise not have the opportunity to visit.

A PASMAE Conference promises to renew both your professional knowledge and expertise and your contacts with former and new colleagues from around Africa and abroad.

Past PASMAE conference information will be updated as and when we receive such documentation.
