New Horizons International Music Association (NHIMA) is proud to present a conversation with our founder, Dr. Roy Ernst on
Tuesday, January 5th, 2021 at 7:00 PM EST.  Join us in celebrating 30 years of success with New Horizons Music. 

Roy Ernst is a professor emeritus of the Eastman School of Music of the University of Rochester, where he taught for 25 years and chaired the music education department for 12 years. In 1991, Dr. Ernst started the first New Horizons Band at Eastman for the purpose of creating a model program emphasizing entry and re-entry points to music-making for senior adults. Later, he became the founding director of the New Horizons Music Project, funded by the National Association of Music Merchants and the National Association of Band Instrument Manufacturers. In that capacity, he used the New Horizons Band as a model to assist in starting more than 100 similar programs in the United States and Canada. NHIMA now represents approximately 180 groups in the United States, Canada, and around the world.
