Notre Dame Academy

Notre Dame has housed The South Buffalo School of Music since 2014.  This partnership creates an increased musical presence as students are eligible to receive instrumental instruction during school hours.  The NDA Wind and Guitar Ensembles offer students an opportunity to learn an instrument in a community setting while also nurturing the individual talents and techniques of each developing musician.  The NDA Ensembles are present at concerts as well as school liturgies and other community events.
