What We Do
Northeastern Music Programs provides a turnkey instrumental and classroom music education programs to Catholic and parochial, private, and charter schools grades K-8. The Northeastern Advantage offers these schools the ability to provide students high-quality music education without the high start-up costs and overhead of music teaching staff.
Founded in 1983 by Dr. Randy Navarre, Northeastern Music has provided these services to several hundred schools in the Philadelphia / Allentown / Central PA regions, Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland. Dr. Navarre, who is also a musician and printed music publisher, grew the business organically since its inception, and in 2008, acquired Instrumental Music, tripling in size overnight. In March 2017, Dr. Navarre sold the business to long-time instrumental program partner and school music dealer, Menchey Music Service.
