Abington School District Honored For Their Dedication to Music Education

The Abington School District has been recognized as one of the Best Communities in the Nation for their commitment to music education by the NAMM Foundation. The press release stated:

The Best Communities for Music Education program serves as an affirmation to schools, their districts, and surrounding community for commitment to creating well-rounded curriculum opportunities for all students through musical instruction. Music education can offer intellectual tools and experiences that last a lifetime, and for many of these children, their first and often only exposure to music making will be in school. That’s why now, more than ever, the programs and their respective communities that assure music education is essential and not optional for all students deserve our gratitude and recognition.

The NAMM Foundation is a nonprofit supported in part by the National Association of Music Merchants and its approximately 10,300 members around the world. The foundation advances active participation in music making across the lifespan by supporting scientific research, philanthropic giving, and public service programs.
