Welcome students! We're delighted that you're joining us this year. Before you embark on your musical journey, we ask that you take the time to read through the student pages on the site. You'll find important information from your instructors about the classroom, your instrument(s), and live performances.

We look forward to a great year of music!

We would love to tell you more. If interested, please contact Christina Holden at tomchristinaholden@comcast.net or FOMAHIhelp@gmail.com



And help Hamilton kids make music!


New and returning students taking a music class or an afterschool music club (Band, Choir, Orchestra, Vocal Jazz, Sr. Jazz, Jr. Jazz) must register to support HIMS music.


No other middle school offers music enrichment like HIMS!


More than 60% of Hamilton students participate in music…but, the district pays for

less than 30% of the expenses that power this award-winning program.


That’s where we come in. We’re the Friends of Music at Hamilton International (FOMAHI), a 100 percent volunteer organization that fundraises for and supports the music program. Our volunteers book hundreds of hours annually counting instruments, prepping concerts, selling baked goods, and ensuring the directors have what they need to thrive.

  • Licensing sheet music for every student
  • Instrument repair (including tune-ups for 4 pianos) and purchase, sound system maintenance
  • Subsidizing out-of-state trips to major competitions
  • Ensemble Instruction
  • Providing scholarships for our students in need


Register your child by clicking on the blue "Registration & Payments!" button above or by clicking here.  $25 enrichment fee per student highly recommended but not necessary.  (Online payment via credit card or PayPal).  Registration fees go directly towards the music program, and by registering you will also receive FOMAHI communications. 


While you’re there, consider adding a tax-deductible donation. And, view the  volunteer opportunities!


Yours in music,
