NCMEA Collegiate Chat: Developing an Inclusive Vision for Music Education

Collegiate NCMEA members join past and current NCMEA leaders to discuss how NAfME and NCMEA are approaching equity and inclusion. Topics include:

  • What’s happening at the national and state levels?
  • How can an inclusive vision affect the work of a Collegiate NAfME chapter or of music education students as they move through student teaching into their careers?
  • What can individual educators do?


  • Dr. Carol Earnhart, immediate Past-NCMEA President and Director of Choral Activities at Robert B. Glenn High School
  • Mr. Johnathan Hamiel, NCMEA President and band director at R.J. Reynolds High School
  • Ms. Jazzmone Sutton, former NCMEA President and the current State Advocacy Engagement Manager for NAfME
  • Ms. Lillie Almond Harris, NCMEA IVfME Chair and General Music Teacher at Union Hill Elementary School
