Music program receives nationwide recognition

  • Santa Rosa City Schools once again has been named among the Best Communities for Music Education by NAMM Foundation​!

    NAMM Music Education Award 2021

    Now in its 22nd year, the Best Communities for Music Education designation is awarded to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students. Santa Rosa City Schools is one of only 19 school districts in California to receive this honor in 2021 (our second year in a row!), recognizing outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students and community leaders who have made music education part of a well-rounded education.


    Our community should know that, even during Distance Learning, our student musicians, including those in the 4th-6th Grade Music Blitz program, have been invited to continue with their music through video classes. Our music teachers have been working together to create lessons and videos for the students, as well as ways for the students to play along with their peers in pre-recorded performances. We're proud of all of our student musicians, music teachers, and this honor!
