The NWMPA is the parent booster organization for the Choir, Band and Orchestra programs at Niles West High School.
Our goal is to support these programs though scholarship, fundraising, and volunteerism.
We provide reduced price private music lessons for students with demonstrated financial need, private lessons for students switching to new instruments at the directors’ request, award scholarships for freshman thru seniors in each of the three programs, purchase instruments and equipment, and fund projects outside the scope of the school budget.
Music education has been shown to enhance experiences in ways that reach far beyond the classroom, and instill skills beneficial in all aspects of life. We invite you to join us in supporting music education at Niles West.
All funds raised by the NWMPA support the music programs at Niles West.
