National Association for Music Educators (NAfME) Collegiate at Hope


Welcome to CNAfME at Hope College (Chapter 465).
(Formerly CMENC

We are a student organization
from the Hope College Music Department whose purpose is to
allow students involved in the music education program to further their
development as pre-service teachers by:

  • Attending local, state and national music conferences
  • Listening to guest speakers on topics that relate to the pre-service music
  • Developing strong relationships with fellow students for support and
  • Receiving additional support and leadership from the music education faculty beyond what is normally expected within the classroom
