About Charms


Charms is the online management program that the Hudsonville Bands use to keep students and parents connected and informed. On Charms, you'll find rehearsal schedules, concert dates, student account information, volunteer sign ups, where you can pay band fees and more.

If you are not a band student or parent of a band student, enter "hudsonvillebands" as your log in to view the public calendar (the public calendar can also be viewed on this website under calendar). 

If you ARE a band student or parent, log in with “hudsonvillebands” and then in the next window under student password, you can enter your password to access more detailed information including your student account.


If you forgot your password, please contact Tracey at treasurer@hudsonvillebands.org
