What is Tri-M?
Tri-M Music Honor Society is the national program of NAfME which focuses on creating future leaders in music education and music advocacy. This program has existed for 83 years. There are over 1,775 chapters across 50 states and 15 countries with more than 75,000 students. These students contribute on average more than 750,000 service hours to their schools and communities, and raise nearly $1 million for causes they care about.
Do I need to have a Tri-M Chapter to participate?
Nope! This is open to all music students in leadership groups or for any schools looking to implement more student leadership into their programs.
Specifics of the Day
Students will attend a keynote session with Mr. Sheehan and then participate in various clinics led by local leaders throughout the day. The schedule also features time to have breakout discussions between students, as well as a 30 minute lunch break. Check out this schedule of fantastic clinics we have lined up for you as well as their bios.
Due to current circumstances, we will have the event virtually hosted through Zoom. Teacher leaders will host the event for each clinician. The Zoom link will go live the morning of the event embedded within the day’s schedule.
Who can attend?
Students from Vermont high schools with current Tri-M chapters as well as high schools with band, choir, or orchestra councils are welcome to attend. Additionally, schools without Tri-M Chapters who are considering the idea, are encouraged to attend. The event itself is only $10 for each school to register as many students as they would like.
I’m ready, sign us up!
Please register students for this event by Friday, November 13th. Registration after this time is accepted, but please note that it’s most helpful for our own organization to do this by the 13th.
We hope that you and your students are able to attend what will be an inspiring and rewarding day. Please feel free to contact either of us with questions.
