“Youth are the Winds of Change”


Our Mission

“We are Music Educators creating a connection with Service Learning, Teacher Preparation, and a Sustainable Musical Connection to the Community of Sonoma.”

NOMA WINDS offers Sonoma County wide high school and middle school instrumentalists an opportunity for a rich cultural and educational experience. Music students currently enrolled in a band program or those who don’t have a program at their school are welcome. All recently graduated high school wind, brass, and percussionists are also welcome. NOMA WINDS is not an Honor Band. We are a service learning, community outreach program that offers additional opportunities for instrumentalists to broaden their music education.

NOMA WIND’s participants will engage in a full Ensemble Performance experience, as well as Masterclasses and Sectional Coaching provided by the finest Sonoma State University Music Education majors and pre-professionals currently enrolled in the California Teacher Credential Program for Music Education.

REPERTOIRE will include works that are relevant, new, classic, reachable, and challenging

There is no fee for NOMA WINDS members

Students of all abilities are welcome. Placement auditions will determine participation in Noma Winds or Junior Noma Winds
