Wesley College Director of Bands Dr. Jordan E. Kinsey was appointed to the Advisory Committee for the Music Educators Journal (MEJ), published in association with National Association for Music Education (NAfME).
The Journal is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal that covers practical articles on music teaching approaches and philosophies, instructional techniques, current trends and issues in music education in schools and communities and the latest in products and services.
“I am particularly excited for this opportunity because it will allow me to have a significant voice in the direction of music education in the United States, and provide national exposure for our innovative new music education program here at Wesley,” said Dr. Kinsey. “Service on the MEJ Advisory Council is also an important stepping stone towards higher levels of leadership in this national organization.”
Dr. Kinsey was appointed to serve a four-year term that begins on July 1, 2018, and will end June 30, 2022. As part of the advisory committee he is expected to act as reviewer of manuscripts submitted to MEJ in a blind online review process; uphold and elevate the scholarly integrity and practical application of MEJ articles; consider all valid scholarly perspectives and respond with thorough written reviews of manuscripts in a timely manner as well as review approximately one manuscript every two to three months.
