LVCSD Musicians Thrive During Unique Opportunity

A unique musical opportunity allowed 53 Locust Valley student musicians to attend workshops led by professional musicians. The virtual workshops were sponsored by the Nassau Music Educators Association from Feb. 5-7.

Locust Valley music teachers nominated students in grades 5-12 for participation in these performance readiness workshops which were held in lieu of the county-wide ensemble performances typically held this time of year. 

Student musicians joined the interactive sessions that ran for 60-90 minutes each, learning from the professional musicians and playing for the workshop participants.

“This was an opportunity that provided our students with an experience they could not have had during the typical school year,” said AnnMarie Buonaspina, Coordinator of Music, K-12. “Students actively participated in the workshops, demonstrating their own skills and learning from others.”
