Another High Note for Massapequa Music Program

MSD Best Communities

For the 16th consecutive year and the 17th time overall, the Massapequa School District has been nationally recognized for its exceptional music education program. It was named to the NAMM Foundation’s 2024 Best Communities for Music Education list.

This is the 25th year that the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation has published its Best Communities for Music Education list, recognizing hundreds of schools and districts across the country. To be considered, the district had to submit an extensive application outlining the components of its music education program as well as the support its receives from the board of education, administrators and the community.

Massapequa’s repeated inclusion on the list reflects its strong music program, with a wealth of opportunities for students at the elementary, middle and high school levels. From general music classes, to band, chorus and orchestra ensembles, to annual musical productions, there are extensive opportunities for students.

“The Best Communities for Music Education program recognizes outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students and community members who have made music education part of a well-rounded education,” said Vincent Green, director of fine and performing arts. “This recognition is a testament to the Massapequa community for their continuing support for the fine and performing arts. We strive to maintain an exceptionally high commitment and access to music education, and we are honored that the NAMM Foundation has once again recognized our efforts.”
