About PMA

    The purpose of the Parents Music Association shall be to foster, encourage and support the many aspects of music education in the  Norwood Public School system, to enrich the scope of student involvement and to stimulate broad community involvement in the program. The objective of the PMA is to help provide high quality music education to the students of the Norwood Public School system by assisting the Director of Fine Arts in the promotion and achievement of educational and performance excellence.

*If your child is involved in the Norwood Public Schools Music Program, then you are a member of the Norwood PMA. Help support the children in the Music Program.  We are always looking for new ideas.

    The Parents Music Association was founded in 1974. The Norwood PMA has been a key component in the development and maintenance of the excellent music program in the Norwood Public Schools.  The PMA helps to provide funding and manpower that enables our performing groups to participate in State and National competitions.  PMA members serve as coordinators for music camp, providing students with week-long retreat in Maine for intensive preparation for coming season.  They maintain and facilitate the distribution of uniforms and equipment and chaperone each concert performance.  Each year, Norwood hosts major competitions for choral, jazz, and marching band groups attended by students from all over Massachusetts .  Fundraising by the PMA supports the music camp, helps to provide equipment and pays for adult chaperones when groups travel.  In addition, the PMA supports a major scholarship program to assist students from the music program as they continue their college educations.

    All PMA Monthly Board meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month.
