Amador’s Tri-M Music Honor’s Society poses after a delightful performance at the senior center.

Tri-M Music Honors Society is a national organization where students from music programs get countless opportunities to perform, lead, and serve the community. 

“I created Tri M back in January of 2023. I wanted to give back to the community that has cultivated my growth as a person. While doing research I came across the program and realized the program’s emphasis matches what I wanted to give back to the program,” said Tri-M Co-president Rohith Dinesh (‘25)

Impact

A large part of Amador’s Tri-M program is the idea of giving back to the music community. Through fundraisers and community service events, this program aims to unite the music community.

“There’s outreach to the larger community off of our campus that connects citizens in Pleasanton with students who can share music as a means of creating community and support,” said Jonathan Grantham, Tri-M Chapter Advisor

With Amador’s music program containing over 500 students, Tri-M helps to give a voice to each student to better the program. 

“I joined Tri-M because it helped me make an impact in the music community, which is a community that I’m really heavily involved in. It’s a large part of my high school life, so it just felt like something that I should do to give back to the community,” said Tri-M Member Athrv Gupta (‘26)

Events

Another big part of this organization is serving the people of the community. One of their more recent events was a performance of a medley of songs from the 70s and 80s to senior residents at senior centers. 

“One of our recent events was the AP Music Theory and Tri M collaboration project, where the AP Music Theory students transposed songs that the residents at the memory care center requested, and we all went to the center to put a little performance on for them,” said Tri-M Co-president Sunny Moon (‘25)

Members of the organization are also required to partake in creative, service projects for volunteer hours that are meant to benefit the music program.

“We also participated in a couple of service projects such as organizing music folders and cleaning the music room,” said Gupta

Community

The music program is one of the most tight-knit communities at Amador Valley and allows for interactive experiences between people in the music community. 

“I like to think of the [music] program as a spectrum, considering that we have nearly 500 or so students. Everyone has their own individual character but together it fits together in the broad picture that makes the program feel like home,” said Dinesh

Amador’s Tri-M program is a driving force of unity for band, orchestra, and choir. In the future, Tri-M aims to continue hosting community-related events and better the music program here at Amador. 

“I guess when you’re in the music program, it’s this feeling of you’re in this community. It’s more than just being in a class. You’re actually interacting with other people. You’re doing stuff outside of class together,” said Moon.
