THANK YOU FOR HELPING TO “KEEP MUSIC ALIVE” AT NHS!
A sincere thank you to all of those who have made a tax-deductible donation to our music program! These donations are the only way we can continue to provide the high level of experiences for all of our nearly-500 students, and they cover everything from the coaches that come in for each section, instrument purchase and repair, accessories such as strings, rosin, drum sticks and mallets, mouthpieces and reeds, to purchasing the very music we perform. At this time, roughly 30% of our families have made a donation to our program – thank you so much for your support! While donations are not required to participate, a tax-deductible donation will help sustain our program at its current level. Donations of any amount are welcome at any time – no donation is too small to make a significant impact! Families are also encouraged to check with their employers as many will offer matching donations! You are also welcome to make a donation of your time as there are SEVERAL opportunities to volunteer and get involved with our Instrumental Music Family!
Please visit https://timbmusic.org/donate/ and https://timbmusic.org/volunteer/ to help Keep Music Alive at Northwood!
HAVE YOU SIGNED AND RETURNED YOUR INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC AGREEMENT (IMA)?
All music students should have received a paper class syllabus and “Keep Music Alive (KMA)” information. Student AND Parent are REQUIRED to go online and sign the Instrumental Music Agreement, verifying you have read the class syllabus.

PARENTS: THANK YOU FOR HELPING!
We hope you are enjoying watching your students perform and meeting other band parents! From getting the equipment and instruments to and from the game, to feeding the students, to helping them with their uniforms, it takes a small army to make sure each performance runs smoothly. We are so thankful for each and every one of you who support the band!
