Our next general meeting is scheduled for:
- know all about our Recognition Awards?
- know all about NYSSMA?
- know all about All-County participation requirements?
- know all about ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) and its impact on music education?
For answers to these questions and more, the Highland Music Boosters has created a Resource Guide for Parents. The guide will now be available at all meetings and events where we have an information table.

This year the HMB is thrilled to acknowledge our performance students "music team member tee shirts."

All proceeds go directly back into the programs we support.
BOOSTERS AWARDED VH1 KEYS + KIDS GRANT OF KAWAI CS10 HYBRID PIANO
We are thrilled to announce that our organization, along with only twelve other groups nationwide, has been awarded a Kawai CS10 hybrid piano valued at $10,000 by the VH1 Save the Music Foundation's Keys + Kids program. This grant will provide an acoustic/digital piano for programs in the Highland High School, and will truly bring our music students into the 21st Century.
Excitement, motivation, and a renewed strength in our commitment to music education are just a few of the anticipated impacts this piano will have on our program and students. The quality and versatility of the Kawai CS10 will encourage the continuation of the learning process while inspiring the creative process for vocal and instrumental students and teachers.
A huge thank-you to the VH1 Save the Music Foundation, and to the students, parents, and community members who inspire us with their unwavering support of music in our schools.

Topic of the Month
Every month, we will be addressing a different topic that directly relates to the goals of our organization. See our monthly newsletter for details.
"Music does a lot of things for a lot of people. It's transporting, for sure. It can take you right back, years back, to the very moment certain things happened in your life. It's uplifting, it's encouraging, it's strengthening." -- Aretha Franklin
