Who are we?

We are parents & community members who support all the music programs throughout the Spring-Ford Area School District.

What we do?

We provide organizational, in-person, logistical, and operating support for all our music programs. This includes fundraising, food prep, moving, prop assembly, chaperoning, planning, and other such tasks and commitments.

Why we do what we do!

Specific examples of our efforts:

Funding for clinicians and guest conductors to work with the students

Funding to maintain the indoor Color Guard and Indoor Percussion units

Organizing chaperones for trips and competitions

Renting, maintaining, and driving vehicles required to move student equipment

Providing services and support to the directors for planning and coordinating trip activities

Providing financial assistance to qualifying students in need for trips

"The best way to describe the SFMA ... we are to the entire district's music programs what the HSA/PTO are to the elementary programs, or what the athletic boosters are to the sports programs."
