Specifically designed for senior adults, the New Horizons Band brings the "Band Experience" into your life!
Whether you played an instrument in school or have never played before, the New Horizons program is your chance to meet new people and enjoy working together in preparation for concerts and other community performances.
Rehearsals are held weekly at our Waukesha location and last approximately1 1/2-2 hours. All adults aged 50 and over, regardless of previous musical experience, are welcome to join. New Horizons Band sessions are held in trimesters, and cost just $75 per trimester-a great value!
Plus, White House of Music offers all new New Horizons members special deals on renting or
purchasing a band instrument to use in the program! If you don't have an instrument of your own, we'll help you get set up with a quality, affordable instrument before your first day of band.
Not sure if New Horizons is for you? We invite you to sit in on an upcoming rehearsal and meet the band! Our next New Horizons trimester welcomes members at any time, so don't delay! Join us for this exciting program!

The NHB is an international organization of over 150 bands focusing on players over 55 years of age.
NHB reaches musicians of all skill levels who either want to keep on playing or who have never played an instrument before joining. For many of us music was set side for work and family demands until retirement.
Every New Horizons Band has a community sponsor. These sponsors provide support in many ways. The White House of Music and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee are the sponsors of our band. The band is self-supporting through a fee levied each trimester. The current fee is $75.00 or about $5.00 per week. With this fee we provide a meeting place, conductors, music, bookkeeping services and advertising.
We practice on Wednesdays from 10:30 to noon at the White House of Music, 2101 N. Springdale Road in Waukesha. Stop in to see and hear what we are doing. You are welcome to sit-in or just observe. Then we hope you will join us every week.
The band is governed by an elected board of directors who all constantly work to expand
the band so that anyone who wants to perform music will have an opportunity.
Call me anytime if you have questions or ask the staff at any White House of Music store.
