Working With School Band & Orchestra Directors

Our relationships with the school music programs are central to our mission. Dating back to 1953 when our founder, Bruce White, a local band director, started White House of Music, we realized that community involvement started in the schools…it was then and there that our Music For Life philosophy was born.

Since that time, we’ve expanded our School Services to make the lives of busy parents and band and orchestra directors easier through:

  • Demo nights at local schools
  • Free music folders for band and orchestra programs
  • School delivery service
  • Music educator resources & workshops
  • Repair services for school-owned instruments
  • Assistance in music department and district budgeting
  • Support for concerts and competitions
  • Advertising and sponsorship support
