Welcome to the Farmington Public Schools Music Department Webpage. This year, the town of Farmington and the public school music department were presented the national honor of Best Communities for Music Education. Each school district receiving the “Best Communities” designation scored in the 80th percentile or higher in the survey’s grading process. Participants in the survey answered detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program, and other relevant factors in their communities’ music education programs. These programs are exemplary programming with large groups of students making music and winning regional, state, and national awards. This award celebrates the exemplary music programs in our schools, a high percentage of students who participate in the music program, outstanding music educators, dedicated parents, and supportive community.
