Posted 5/3/23

Carlsbad Unified has again been recognized by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation on their list of Best Communities for Music Education. Designations are made to districts that demonstrate an exceptionally high commitment and access to music education. 

Now in its 24th year, the 2023 Best Communities for Music Education program recognized 830 school districts across 43 states for the outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students, and community leaders and their support for music education as part of a well-rounded education for all children.

“Music education, as part of a well-rounded education, has never been more important to unleash students’ creativity and supports emotional health and well-being as they build connections through music activities,” shares Mary Luehrsen, Executive Director of The NAMM Foundation. “We applaud the administrators, teachers, and communities who support and sustain music education through a period of intense change and are committed to music education so that all children can explore and express themselves through music.”
