Heid Music’s School of the Month program was created as a way to spotlight excelling music programs throughout Wisconsin and Upper Michigan each month, September-May.

It also serves as a way to congratulate student musicians and music educators on their hard work and dedication to their musicianship and music programs.

School of the Month recipients will receive a commemorative award, as well as recognition in our stores and on our social media platforms.
