We are very excited to announce that Mr. Vincent Vicchiariello, Director of Bands at Nutley High School, has just been selected by Yamaha to the inaugural class of their "40 Under 40" music education advocacy program..
Yamaha launched the "40 Under 40" music education advocacy program to celebrate and recognize outstanding music educators who are making a difference by growing and strengthening their music programs.
"On behalf of the Music Boosters Executive Board, our former and current parents and especially students, we congratulate Mr. V on this well-deserving award" stated Salvatore Scarpelli, Nutley Music Boosters President. Secretly, Boosters solicited numerous quotes from current music families and alumni to create one big nomination letter. The support was so outstanding that many even submitted on their own to Yamaha. "As a fellow NHS classmate to now a colleague I have seen Mr. V grow and instill the passion for music in our students, and I couldn't be more prouder of him" concluded Scarpelli.
