Nominations For First Annual GRAMMY Music Educator Award Opening Soon

For every performer who makes it to the GRAMMY stage, there was a teacher who played a critical role in getting them there.  And really, that’s true for all of us who are making music today.  Maybe they introduced you to your first instrument.  Or they showed you how to get over your stage fright.  Or maybe, they just inspired you to have the confidence to go for it when you were ready to give up.

It’s time to say thank you to ALL of those teachers who put in ALL of those hours to make sure that ALL of us love and play music today!  And who better to do that than the people who bring you the GRAMMY Awards?

We’ll select 10 finalists and one winner each year to be recognized for their remarkable impact.  The winner will be flown to Los Angeles to accept the Award and attend the GRAMMYs, plus pick up a $10,000 honorarium.  All finalists will receive a $1000 honorarium as well.

Nominations will open on Feb. 11, 2013, so make sure to come back and nominate your favorite teacher!
