This club is a student-run organization that is open to any students participating in the music ensembles. Many music students are also members of the National Association of Music Educators (NAfME). This club hosts guest speakers on diverse topics, including “Using Orff instruments in the Classroom”, “Using Alexander Techniques when Performing”, “Music and Technology”, and “Instrument Repair”. Members can attend the New Jersey Music Educators Conference every February held in New Brunswick. They can participate in Karaoke Night, Rock Band Night, Caldwell’s Got Talent or Music Movie Night. They have attended performances at St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Papermill Playhouse. Every year they sing Christmas carols at Marion Manor. Last year they sponsored the First Caldwell Fest where 5 local bands performed for the college. They have also provided support to the music department by repairing and painting music stands. This spring they are planning to paint inspirational quotes on the walls in the practice rooms.
