Baldwin Wins Best Communities for Music Education Award



The Baldwin County School District has been recognized for the eigth year in a row with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from The NAMM Foundation. This award is given to school districts that demonstrate outstanding commitment to providing music access and education to all students.


“We have made substantial investments in our Fine Arts program at all grade levels in the district, and we see those investments pay off with distinctions like this,” said Superintendent Dr. Noris Price. “It’s because of the hard work of our teachers, students, support staff, administrators and parents as well as the strong support we have had from our school board, that we have received this honor.”


Research has shown that music education provides cognitive and social skill benefits for children who participate in it. Studies have found that students who are involved in music are not only more likely to graduate high school but also to attend college. The benefits of early exposure to music education improve how the brain processes and assimilates sounds, a trait that lasts well into adulthood.


“Our fine arts program does more than expose students to the arts. It provides them outlets to express their creativity while also opening doors to continue their education in college through fine arts scholarships,” added Dr. Price.


The NAMM Foundation is a nonprofit organization that supports scientific research, philanthropic giving, and public service programs in music-making. The Best Communities for Music Education designation is awarded to school districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students.
