Music Education LogoHicksville Public Schools Receives Music Education Honor…Again!

Long Island has had its share of winning teams: There was the ABA Nets of the mid-1970s and the Stanley Cup Islander teams winning 4 consecutive championships from 1980-1983, but a dynasty has been building right here in Hicksville! For the 9th consecutive year, our Hicksville Public Schools has been honored with a Best Communities for Music Education Award  by the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation. This honor by NAMM, which has existed since 1901, recognizes the synergy created by the efforts of motivated, talented students from elementary through high school grades who have been inspired and nurtured by their dedicated teachers while receiving encouragement from family members. The result is a true “community” that supports the ongoing, innovative learning process that produces memorable vocal and instrumental music.

There’s no count of how many Hicksville High School graduates have chosen various career paths in the field of music. Still, watching the students perform on stage at the recently dedicated Chuck Arnold Auditorium, one has to wonder how many future stars are creating musical magic right before our eyes.
