The Tri-M Music Honor Society is an NAfME program that recognizes outstanding music students in secondary level school (grades 6 through 12). Tri-M activities increase students’ school and community involvement with music. Tri-M members are selected based on their academic and musical achievement as well as on their strength of character. Chapters invite qualified students from any organized music ensemble or class in their school to join this international music honor society. Chapter members regularly get involved with community-service activities and music-enrichment events, nurturing a more cohesive, broad, and unified music program. Rewards for the activity include scholarships and awards that are available through the Tri-M awards program.
Benefits of Tri-M membership include unique Tri-M membership materials, scholarships, individual achievement awards, biannual Tri-M newsletters, the Tri-M Web site, Tri-M specialty items, Tri-M conferences at select NAfME nation and regional conferences, and automatic membership in the Junior ASCAP Membership program (J.A.M.).
