The Bellmore Union Free School District was recognized by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation as one of 2016 Best Communities for Music Education.
Among the 13,515 school districts across the nation, Bellmore received this honor with 475 other districts for its outstanding efforts and exceptionally high commitment to music education and for ensuring all students are offered exceptional musical learning in their curriculum. Along with our outstanding general music program, Bellmore offers instruction in string, woodwind, and percussion instruments and provides opportunities for students to participate in band, orchestra and chorus and perform in various school concerts, choral and recorder groups, and musical theatre productions.

The NAMM Foundation is a nonprofit organization, which advances active participation in music. The District’s music program was analyzed for funding, highly qualified music teachers, commitment to high music standards, community support and participation and access to music instruction.

“We are extremely proud of our music department, faculty and young musicians for receiving this tremendous honor,” Superintendent of Schools      Dr. Joseph Famularo said.
