Can I be supportive without joining the band?

     We are seeking individuals interested in collaborating in the development of the Second Wind Band. For members of the band there will be significant educational and social components following the concept and philosophy of the International New Horizons Music Association. There will be a focus on individuals in the middle-age group and older. Collaborators can be musicians, business leaders and others interested in establishing a program that can offer the physical and mental health benefits that music-making can bring to the mature person. For more information, please see our Contact page.

How do I get started?

     For specific questions, or to be added to our email list for future updates, please see our Contact page or attend one of our open houses.

How do I join the band?
     The Second Wind Band began rehearsing in March, 2017. If you wish more information on membership, please complete our membership form. Once we have this form, our director and/or president will contact you to provide more information. You may sit in on a rehearsal before becoming a member. After that, you become a member of the band by providing us some basic contact information and paying a membership fee.

How much does it cost?

     Our goal as a non-profit is to make the cost membership as reasonable and high value as possible. Individual membership is $10 per two-hour weekly rehearsal ($15 for couples), payable monthly. In the future the band may operate on a session basis and then payment would be by the session. If you feel you would benefit from private lessons, these are available from a number of independent teachers who set their own fees.

Are you affiliated with any other music groups?

     DCNHM is a proud member of the Association of Concert Bands and the New Horizons International Music Association.

You're never too old to make music.
