District Welcomes New Director of Art and Music

Vincent Green

The Massapequa School District welcomes Vincent Green as the new director of fine and performing arts. He comes to the district with nearly three decades of experience as a music teacher and administrator.

In Massapequa, he will oversee the music and art programs at the elementary, middle and high school levels, including special events such as concerts and theatrical productions. The music and art department includes a staff of 50 teachers at nine schools. 

Mr. Green previously served as the director of fine and performing arts in the Islip School District for 10 years, where he also was an instructional technology liaison. Prior to that, he was a middle school assistant principal and music department chairman in Nyack Public Schools in Rockland County. An accomplished vocalist and saxophone player, Mr. Green has been a music educator at every level, with experience as a band director, choral director and general music teacher.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in music education from the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam, a master’s degree in music education from Western Connecticut State University and a certificate of advanced studies in educational administration from SUNY New Paltz. Both of his children are also Crane graduates and are now music teachers.

Mr. Green incorporates music into all aspects of his life. He is the music director and organist for his church, and plays with a summer band.

During a visit to Massapequa’s Summer Fine Arts program, Mr. Green said he was extremely impressed with the high level of participation and the enthusiasm from the students in art, music and theater workshops. He said he is proud to be joining a district with a reputable music and art program that is strongly supported by the community.
