In all, 176 communities were recognized in an announcement that comes in anticipation of NAMM’s National Wanna Play Music Week, (May 7-13). The announcement of the 2012 Best Communities for Music Education campaign comes during a crucial time as school districts nationwide finalize budgets. The Best Community designation is a distinction worthy of pride, but is also a call to action for local music education advocates to help preserve and potentially expand access to their current music education programs. Each school receiving the “Best Communities” designation scored in the 80th percentile or higher in the survey’s grading process.
