Nominations for Music Educator of the Year

During the 55th Annual Grammy Awards Telecast it was announced that the GRAMMY Foundation and The Recording Academy are partnering to present their first-ever Music Educator Award to recognize music educators for their contributions to our musical landscape and their positive influence on their students' musical experiences.

The award is open to current U.S.-based music teachers from kindergarten through college, in public and private schools. Anyone can nominate a teacher — students, parents, friends, colleagues, community members, school deans, and administrators — and teachers are also able to nominate themselves. Teachers in after-school, private studios, or other educational settings are not eligible. Nominated teachers will be notified and invited to fill out an application.

There are many music therapists who working as music educators - perhaps you know of one who should be recognized for the outstanding work that he or she brings to the profession. The nomination form, application and a FAQ about the award can be found at this link:

The deadline for nominations is April 15, 2013
