Duxbury Music Department
Duxbury Music Recognized as one of Nation's Best Six Years in a Row!!
The Duxbury Public Schools has been given the designation as one of the Best Communities in the United States for Music Education!
Established in 1999 by the NAMM Foundation, The Best Communities for Music Education survey is a nationwide search for communities who provide access to music education as an essential part of a complete education and exemplify commitment and support for music education. The survey measured a variety of factors, including a budgetary commitment to music, opportunities to learn music, the presence of highly qualified, certified music teachers, adherence to state and national standards, types of musical experiences offered and opportunities for performance and competition, among others. To make the “Best Communities,” a community must be committed to access and high standards for music education in all those areas.
Under the leadership of Director of Music Jill Noerenberg, the Duxbury Public Schools have over 1,000 students from 5th grade – 12th grade playing an instrument and/or singing. Recently, DHS musicians have performed at Carnegie Hall, Jordan Hall, Strathmore Hall, Symphony Hall, and Walt Disney World.
