KHS America

Academic Alliance

If Music Education teaches us one all-important lesson, it’s that we are more successful when we work together.

It takes a community of students, performers, educators, parents, school music retailers and those who design and craft the instruments to bring music to life.

In support of this community, we proudly present the KHS America Academic Alliance.

Frequently Asked Questions

See if your question is answered here.

My school already owns Jupiter, Mapex and/or Majestic instruments. Do we already qualify as Academic Alliance Members?

Signing up for a Silver membership is as easy as filling out the Academic Alliance Membership Form with your school information and level of participation!

Does my band program have to own instruments of every KHS brand to qualify as an Academic Alliance Member?

No. You can actually Qualify for Silver Level membership while owning very few (if any) of our instruments. To qualify for Gold, and particularly Platinum Level Membership, representation of our brands within your program becomes more critical. View Qualification Criteria.

If my program is accepted as a Silver or Gold level member of the Academic Alliance, can we work our way up to Platinum in the future?

Absolutely! As you meet the additional qualification criteria, you are welcome to submit a new application to be advanced to the next level. View Qualification Criteria.

As a KHS Academic Alliance Member, would my school get special discounts on instruments?

From time to time, there may be specific special offers for member schools, and there are added value items available to members at a certain level, but typically there are no additional discounts given to Academic Alliance member schools. View Member Benefits.
