WSCSD named 2021 ‘Best Community for Music Education’

The West Seneca Music Department has been designated a 2021 “Best Community for Music Education.”

This marks the eighth time in recent years and the fifth consecutive year that the West Seneca Music Department has received this designation.

“We are extremely excited and proud to receive this honor,” said Nora Murnane-Robertson, district coordinator for music education.

In its 22nd year, Best Communities for Music Education is a signature program of the NAMM Foundation that recognizes and celebrates school districts and schools for their support of, and commitment to, music education as well as efforts to assure access to music for all students as part of a well-rounded education.

According to the NAMM Foundation, the award program recognizes outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students and community leaders who have made music education part of a well-rounded education. Designations are made to districts and schools that demonstrate an exceptionally high commitment and access to music education. The award highlights music as a national education issue and shows what your school or community is doing to provide opportunities for music learning.

“Thank you to our West Seneca Board of Education members, administrators, teachers, support staff, parents and community members for your continued, outstanding support of our music department. We are humbled and proud to be recognized among the top music departments in our country,” Murnane-Robertson said.
