SECTION: Music for Lifelong Learning COUNTRY: United States of America PROJECT: MUSIC MAKING FOR ADULTS: NEW HORIZONS MUSIC PROGRAMS DESCRIPTION: New Horizons International Music Association provides entry points to music making for all adults, including those with no musical experience at all and those who were active in school music programs but have been inactive for a long time. Originally conceived by Roy Ernst as a group for adults over 50, there is currently no age minimum, although the typical participant is retired and near 70 in age. Many adults would like an opportunity to learn music in a group setting similar to that offered in schools. However, for most the last music experience was elementary school. New Horizons Music programs serve that need. To that end the philosophy of the program promotes the belief that the style of instruction must be completely supportive and free of competition. Each NHIMA ensemble is autonomous and anyone can begin a group (information as to this process can be found on their website). Groups rehearse in Senior Centers, churches, schools, and recreation centers The philosophy is to welcome all levels of ability on the traditional string orchestra and wind band instruments. There are no auditions and players are instructed (sometimes by retired school teachers, sometimes by university professors) in large ensembles. Small groups are arranged either by “like instruments” (e.g. flute choir), or by genre (Dixieland, German Band, Jazz, etc.). The small groups are sometimes self-led by members, while others are led by instructors Annual memberships are available for individuals and ensembles The NHIMA website publicizes the “camps” organized by various NHIMA ensembles CURRENT STATUS: Over 150 New Horizons ensembles exist in the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, and Iceland. Most are wind band ensembles, but there are orchestras and choirs, as well.
