The Lynbrook School District was recently recognized with the 2019 Best Communities for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation. This is the seventh consecutive year that the district earned this honor due to its outstanding commitment to music education. Lynbrook joins a select 623 school districts nationwide who received the designation this year.
School districts across the country are recognized with this honor for providing high quality music access and education to all students. This includes the hard work and dedication of administrators, teachers, parents, students and community leaders who aim to make music education an integral part of the daily curriculum.
Starting at the kindergarten level, students throughout the Lynbrook School District participate in comprehensive 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.
Music opportunities expand even further once students arrive at Lynbrook High School. High school students can join Lynbrook’s 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 2018-19 school year, students earned All-Eastern Honors Concert Band, 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.
