BHMAA supports the music teachers at Hillside and Brookside by providing ushers for the concerts, paying the accompanists for the Brookside choral concerts, paying for musicians and sets for the Brookside musical, purchasing extra instruments and other music supplies. We also sponsor the instrument petting zoo for 3rd graders, which helps them choose which instrument to play in 4th grade. BHMAA also helps organize the 4th and 5th grade band picnic at the Red Barn. We pay for the drumline class for middle school students. BHMAA provides awards for the graduating 8th graders too.
