LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION commending the Great Neck Public School District
upon the occasion of its designation as a 2013 Best Community for  Music
Education by the NAMM Foundation

WHEREAS,  It  is  the  sense  of  this Legislative Body to commend those
musical programs within our schools which distinguish themselves through
their ability to inspire  students  to  achieve  excellence  in  musical
performance; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly  proud  to  commend
the  Great  Neck  Public School District upon the occasion of its desig-
nation as a 2013 Best Community for Music Education by the NAMM  Founda-
tion; and
  WHEREAS,  The NAMM Foundation seeks to advance active participation in
music-making across the  lifespan  by  supporting  scientific  research,
philanthropic  giving and public service programs from the international
music products industry; and
  WHEREAS, The Best Community for Music Education designation recognizes
collaborative, from-the-ground-up efforts of  teachers,  administrators,
students,  and  parents who continually work to keep comprehensive music
education as an integral part of the core curriculum; and
  WHEREAS, Each young musician in the Great Neck Public School  District
is  additionally  deserving of recognition and acclaim for demonstrating
remarkable commitment to perfecting their musical abilities; and
  WHEREAS, Learning how to play an instrument can boost student achieve-
ment; thus, instruction in music is a positive contribution to the  goal
shared by parents, educators and communities throughout this great State
and Nation, academic success for all students; and
  WHEREAS,  Music study is most worthy of being encouraged and promoted;
by providing students avenues for self-expression,  tools  for  mastery,
and  opportunities  to  exhibit their skills to an audience, they attain
self-esteem to last a lifetime; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
commend  the  Great Neck Public School District upon the occasion of its
designation as a 2013 Best Community for Music  Education  by  the  NAMM
Foundation; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Great Neck Public School District.
