“My best memories, closest friends and greatest experiences during high school all came from the music program at ND. Through the classes, workshops, concerts, tours and events, I became part of what genuinely felt like a family, all brought together by an appreciation of music. The amazing room, teachers, classmates, experiences and atmosphere in the program set it apart from the rest of my highschool life.”

“-Best experience of my life and best memories from high school.”

“The music program at NDHS gave me a place to grow both personally and musically. It gave me the confidence to express myself and to invest in an amazing learning experience. The experiences I had and the relationships I built while in the program are ones I know I will always have and cherish for years to come. Jesse Heffernan has always been an inspiration to me and I will always be thankful for what he and his program have done for me and how they have changed and enriched my life.”

“The music room: my home
The band/choir students: my family
The music program was my safe place to grow and be myself.”

“High school is a time for personal growth and development. For me, the music program helped me build my confidence skills and get out of my shell. Stepping into the music room just felt so different from every other room in ND. Maybe it was the wood ceiling or the purple panels, but I owe a lot to the family that developed me into the person I am today.”

“The NDHS program was a safe place for me to express myself and to let my mind be free. My heart, mind and body spoke to each other while playing my instrument which was challenging to do outside of music. With the support of the NDHS music program, I became a better professional and became more courageous to push myself through difficult passages in life. Without joining the music program, I do not believe I would have become the person who I am today.”
