Every year, the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) populates a list of the Best Communities for Music Education. There are two categories: one for the school district, and one for individual schools.
I think that Riverside, and Hamilton Southeastern Schools as a whole, definitely qualify as a “Best Community for Music Education.” We have such fantastic programs across the board – band, orchestra and choir. We have thousands of students involved in programs from K-12, with nearly 50 teachers providing them with wonderful musical experiences.
If you have a moment to fill one of these surveys out, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks so much for all you do to support music education in your child’s life!
