Tri-M Music Honor Society
Tri-M is designed to recognize students for their academic and musical achievements and to provide leadership and service opportunities to young musicians. To be eligible for the Hyde Park CSD chapter of Tri-M, a student must have a minimum average of 85 overall, and an "A" average in all music classes, be presently enrolled in a music course at their school, and be recommended for membership by their school's music faculty. Students must perform in a school music ensemble for at least one semester of the school year and commit to demonstrating service, leadership, and cooperation. Tri-M is a program of the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), which focuses on creating future leaders in music education and music advocacy. Tri-M recognizes students that have gone above and beyond both academically and musically. It also provides students leadership opportunities to make a difference in their community through music-based service projects. There are more than 1,800 chapters across 50 states and 15 countries. Each year, student members contribute more than 750,000 service hours to their school and local communities and raise nearly $1 million for causes they care about. Last year some highlights included: Setting up, chaperoning, and ushering elementary and middle school concerts, volunteering at the PTSA Clothing Drive, and having a team at the Northern Dutchess Relay for Life. This year we plan to do even more community outreach such as performing music in local assisted living and nursing home facilities.
