The River's Edge Arts Alliance is proud to support music in the Hudson Public Schools by administering the Afterschool Band Lesson Program. After school band lessons are offered during the school year to students in grade 4 and older. Lessons encompass instruction in woodwinds, brass, and percussion instruments. They also include spring recitals (scheduled for spring 2014) where students and teachers perform beautiful musical selections.
