D64 earns Best Communities for Music Education Award for 2nd straight year

District 64 is celebrating a significant achievement as it has been honored once again with the prestigious Best Communities for Music Education (BCME) Award. This is the 2nd straight year we have won the BCME Award. The recognition highlights the district's commitment to providing outstanding music education opportunities to its students.

The BCME Award, presented annually by the NAMM Foundation, is a symbol of excellence in music education. It acknowledges school districts across the United States for their efforts in offering comprehensive music education programs that enrich students' lives and contribute to their overall academic success.

District 64's receipt of this esteemed award underscores its dedication to fostering a thriving music education environment. Through a combination of innovative curriculum, talented instructors, and strong community support, the district has cultivated a vibrant music culture that inspires students to explore their musical talents and passions.

Instrumental Music Curriculum Specialist Erica Faulhaber and General Music Curriculum Specialist Terry Broeker expressed their pride, stating, "We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the Best Communities for Music Education. This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teachers, staff, students, and community members who continually champion the importance of music education."

The impact of music education extends far beyond the confines of the classroom. Research has shown that students who participate in music programs often exhibit enhanced cognitive skills, improved academic performance, and increased creativity. Moreover, music education fosters important life skills such as discipline, teamwork, and self-expression, preparing students for success in all aspects of their lives. 

By nurturing a love of music and fostering a supportive learning environment, District 64 is empowering its students to reach their full potential and become lifelong advocates for the arts. Through collaboration, innovation, and a steadfast dedication to excellence, D64 continues to inspire and enrich the lives of its students through the power of music.
