Hello, and welcome to the Tri-M area!! 

If you are already a Tri-M advisor at your school and are looking for ideas, check back here for more information!  If you are considering starting a Tri-M group at your school, congratulations!!  Your music department, students, school, and community will be all the better.  All of us are pressed for time, as are the advisors of our schools’ other honor societies.  But we make time for our students because we are passionate about what we do and we want our students and our music departments to be the best they can be.  If you set your organization up right, you are selecting the leaders and most interested kids in your music groups.  All you have to do is give them a little guidance and then step back and watch them create their own experiences. 

Listed here you will find a link to the start-up information from the National website, links to Tri-M websites, and a list of some of the activities Indiana’s creative Tri-M students have been doing. 

Good luck in your endeavors, and if you need some guidance, don’t hesitate to ask!

Kathleen Swayze, State Chair for Tri-M
