MusicWorks is a parent organization which, in partnership with the Nyack Public School District, seeks to support and enhance the music department and increase community awareness of its programs by:
- Providing opportunities for students to perform in a wide variety of settings by arranging for concerts in the community
- Raising funds so students can attend regional and national festivals
- Ensuring that musical opportunities are available to all students (e.g., by offering scholarships for instruments and music lessons)
- Maintaining this website for families and the community.
MusicWorks believes that the benefits to our youth of performing often and participating in competitions and festivals are far-reaching, even beyond building self-esteem and confidence as performers.
