The NAMM Foundation has named 2014’s Best Communities for Music Education, and two Tennessee school districts are included. The Clarksville Montgomery County School System and the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools were selected among the 376 honorees for the Best Communities for Music Education.
East Ridge High School in East Ridge, Tenn., and Lausanne Collegiate School in Bartlett, Tenn., were two of 96 individual schools named as SupportMusic Merit Award winners.
More than 2000 schools and school districts participated in this year’s survey, resulting in a 21 percent increase in designations.
“These schools and districts make a strong commitment to music education in the core curriculum supporting its essential value to a well-rounded education for every child,” said Mary Luehrsen, NAMM Foundation executive director. “Strong, engaging programs that offer students access to music cannot thrive in a vacuum. The Best Communities designation and the SupportMusic Merit Award bring hard-won visibility to music classes, programs and departments that are keeping music education alive in our schools.”
