Two local school districts — Newtown and Bethel — have been named “Best Communities for Music Education in America” by the National Association of Music Merchants.

Only 174 school districts in the country earned the 2010 distinction, including seven from Connecticut: Newtown, Bethel, Greenwich, Cheshire, Simsbury, West Hartford and Torrington.
