Duxbury has been named one of the “Best Communities for Music Education” in the 13th annual national survey by the National Association of Music Merchants FoundationAccording to Nick Tatarka, orchestra director for Duxbury’s middle and high schools, the survey is a nationwide search for communities that provide access to music education as an essential part of their educational program and demonstrate a commitment to it. The survey measures a variety of factors such as budgetary commitment to music, opportunities to learn music, the presence of highly qualified music teachers, adherence to state and national standards, the types of musical experiences offered, and opportunities for performance and competition. Mary Luehrsen, director of the foundation, said past designees have reported that making the list has had a positive effect on their ability to further recognition and support for music programs. She called the designation “a cornerstone of vigorous advocacy for music education programs.”
