The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation has named Hanover County Public Schools (HCPS) as a best community for music education for the seventh year in a row. Hanover County is one of only eighteen school divisions in Virginia to achieve this coveted status. There are 132 school divisions in the commonwealth.

The NAMM Foundation awards this designation to divisions and schools that demonstrate an exceptionally high commitment to offering comprehensive music education to all students. It further serves to recognize the outstanding efforts of teachers, administrators, parents, students, and community leaders who have made music education part of the curriculum. 

Barry Flowe, performing arts curriculum specialist, said, “To qualify for the best communities designation, we had to answer detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, and overall support for our school music programs. We have highly trained teachers, delivering high quality instruction, in a school division and community that highly values music education!”

The NAMM Foundation is a nonprofit organization that serves to advance music education and participation around the world. For more information about the Best Communities for Music Education program, please visit the NAMM Foundation website.
