Who We Are

It is NCMEA’s intention to provide valuable information and resources. The members of the Board of Directors are dedicated and committed to quality music education for all children and are most willing to assist the NCMEA membership in any way. If you have questions and/or need assistance you are invited and encouraged to contact any NCMEA Board member or our Executive Director, Pat Hall.
