South Buffalo School of Music @ Notre Dame Academy - The South Buffalo School of Music has proudly provided the instrumental program for Notre Dame Academy since 2014.  All students in grades 5-8 are eligible to enroll in the Wind Ensemble or Guitar Ensemble to enrich their academic experience.  Students receive small group and ensemble instruction on their instrument of choice.  This program is funded in part by Title IV Federal funds in order to make this opportunity available to all students without increasing tuition for parents.  

Students in grades 3-4 who elect to get a head start on their instrumental instruction may register for small group lessons at an affordable rate.  Students meet with SBSM Instructors weekly on a rotating, pull-out schedule. 

The South Buffalo School of Music also provides private instrumental and vocal instruction on a variety of instruments for learners of all levels of experience during after school and evening hours.  Private lessons are held at both Abbott and Okell Campuses.
