Music & Arts continues to recognize music educators through its annual Music & Arts Music Educator of the Year award. Friday, September 30th is the last day to submit a nomination.

“I remember my first experience with music. I was a little intimidated, but my music teacher made learning feel easy. And, as I continued learning, she was the kind of teacher that would share nuggets of wisdom along the way. To this day, some of those nuggets still encourage me and have helped make who I am today,” said Renier Fee, director of marketing, Music & Arts.

The winner of the Music & Arts Music Educator of the Year award will receive $1,000 and a VIP experience at the annual Midwest Clinic International Band and Orchestra Conference in Chicago. There will be a second and third place award package.

To be eligible to receive the Music & Arts Music Educator of the Year award, nominees must be current, full-time music educators in the U.S. with at least five years of teaching experience in public, private or homeschools. Kindergarten through collegiate-level positions are eligible to participate. The deadline to submit a nomination is Friday, September 30.
