For the eighth consecutive year, the Lynbrook Public Schools was awarded with the 2020 Best Communities for Music Education honor by the NAMM Foundation. The title is granted to school districts with an outstanding commitment and access to music education. Lynbrook joins a select 754 districts nationwide who received the honor this year.
Starting at the kindergarten level, students throughout the Lynbrook Public Schools participate in musical instruction. Elementary students have the option to participate in band, orchestra and chorus programs. Junior concerts begin in third grade and progress to more elaborate performances by fourth grade and throughout the middle school years. Elementary and middle school students can also join their school’s drama club to enhance their music abilities.
Lynbrook High School students partake in school musicals and plays, concert and marching bands, string and symphonic orchestras, concert and mixed choirs, as well as chamber orchestra, string quartets, wind and jazz ensembles, brass choir and music theory courses. During the 2019-20 school year, students earned All-State, All-County and Long Island String Festival Association musical honors. Members of the Tri-M Music Honor Society also use their musical talents each year to serve their community.
