            What should a homeschool music program be? NHME believes that homeschool parents want the program that excels. That program must not only represent excellence, but be rated as a superior program when placed in a judged festival environment. NHME has attained that goal. National Homeschool Music Ensembles, a 501-C3 non-profit, has for the last fifteen years demonstrated the ability to provide a premium musical experience -- literally a lifetime skill.

            We invite you to talk with parents whose children are in the NHME program, and hear from them about our music teaching excellence. Our staff holds music degrees from Skidmore College and the University of  Michigan, and we support the national standards for education which proclaim music a core subject.

            Learning skills of application and synthesis are taught in every class, and  parents see their students attain improved skills in math, reading, science, abstract thought, and problem solving. Check the research on music study, and your choice will be music education.

           NHME is proud of its superior festival rating this year, its record of sending students to State Honors Band, Honors Strings, and Honors Choir, where students demonstrate the ability to join with other great homeschool music students from all over Michigan to play and share.

            We are also proud of our thirteen-year tradition of scheduling joint rehearsals with college ensembles.  NHME is happy to be a member of the Michigan Home School Music Network, the state homeschool music association. Our state association is currently working on a Michigan Homeschool Youth Arts Festival.

            NHME and the nine other homeschool music programs in Michigan are providing a musical learning experience which cannot be duplicated in the public schools. Our experience at NHME shows that our students typically play ahead of the curve.  Our advanced group is playing on an early college level.  We are committed to teaching the foundations of music theory, solfège, counting, and reading, while we pursue musical excellence at all levels. 

            I invite you to call or come in for a visit. NHME has its String Camp at the Pittsfield Grange in Ann Arbor from June 2nd to June 6th -- 9 am until 3:30 pm each day.  NHME has Band Camp in Tecumseh July 21st through July 25th-- 9 am until 3:30 pm each day. 

         NHME would love to answer your questions!  Email, or call 734-995-1205 or 517-423-4314.

            A short reminder: Because of the large number of students now a part of the NHME program, it is difficult to sort out the details (which instrument?  where do I get an instrument?  which group?) for everyone during the first two weeks of Sept.  Please contact us early if you are considering classes this year.  Having everything in place for your student when classes begin provides a smooth seamless experience for them as they begin learning music with NHME.


NHME stands for excellence and strives to be the finest music instruction program in southeast Michigan.  We are proud to serve the homeschool community in Lenawee, Washtenaw, and Monroe counties with a high quality and comprehensive music program.
