A Tri-M Music Honor Society Chapter at your school could positively impact your student musician’s lives. Tri-M encourages students to go above and beyond in their school and community through service projects and performance opportunities.
These projects bring awareness to:
- Local needs through clothes and food drives, community clean up projects, performances at local hospitals and nursing homes.
- Your music program through teacher appreciation events and performances, a music tutoring program, organizing a 5K or walk-a-thon.
- Your esteemed students by allowing them to use their creativity, leadership, and management skills to plan and execute their service projects.
