Putting Them First with Dr. Alice Hammel!

You. All… I cannot wait for you to hear this latest episode with Dr. Alice Hammel! Alice has been a huge inspiration for me and a role model from afar for a long time. It was so great to finally sit down and talk with her about how she has carved this unique mom-researcher-educator-GURU path out for herself. Alice’s story is so very inspiring and I can’t wait for you to hear more from her!

My apologies for the poor audio quality of this one. I was traveling at the time of the recording and my audio was not the best…

Hammel, Virginia Music Educator Association Outstanding Educator (2018) and current President of the Virginia Music Educators Association, is a widely known music educator, author, and clinician whose experience in music is extraordinarily diverse.
