National Association of Music Merchants

 Weston named one of the best communities for music education in America for third time in 2012The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation selected Weston for the third time in 2012 for its annual “Best Communities for Music Education” survey, which acknowledges schools and districts across the U.S. for their commitment to and support of music education in schools.   

 

According to the NAMM Foundation, this “Best Communities” designation "represents not only a distinction worthy of pride, but a call to action for local music education advocates to help preserve – and in some cases, save – their current music education programs."

 Woodland students learn about string instruments from high school musiciansIt all starts in third grade...

 

These Woodland School third graders are learning about the string family from these high school musicians.  They will have the opportunity to choose an instrument, take lessons and perform in an ensemble.  90% of Weston elementary school children participate in a music ensemble.  Steady progress throughout the years has built one of the strongest music programs in the state.

 

The Music Department provides opportunities for participation in vocal and instrumental groups, grades 9-12, and offers a course in music theory. The purpose of the music offerings is the cultivation of a lasting appreciation of music and the personal enrichment brought about through participation and study. Music students also have the opportunity to audition for the Senior Northeast District Music Festival, the All-State Festival, and the All-Eastern Music Festival.
