SAME organises and delivers Conferences both of a general nature and specifically focussed on IT issues. All are well attended, well devised and contribute greatly to the on-going professional development of music teaching colleagues in Scotland.

The annual two-day conference in August/September, held centrally, usually at the appropriate and well resourced University of Stirling, has become a landmark in the calendar. Professional presenters (often with a visiting international guest) are engaged to deliver one-hour sessions across a broad range of topical areas, many of which involve hands-on training for participants. All areas and stages of music education are covered with something for everyone!

A wide-ranging industry and professional exhibition is always available and SAME August/September conferences attract delegates from all over Scotland. The event is lauded by participants as the best in-service available in the year and colleagues return year on year to learn more and refresh friendships and acquaintances established through music education. Live music from young performers is a regular feature at SAME Conferences.

IT events are growing in popularity – as IT becomes more at home in music education – and SAME has grasped that nettle with its effective development of training for teachers. The last IT Conference, MusTech(5) was held on Saturday 16 January 2016.
