This is truly amazing! No award-winning musician would be where they are without teachers, and I think grammy winners should form an organization where each winner teaches music to at-risk youth.
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Music teachers are now eligible for a Grammy honor of their own.
Recording Academy president Neil Portnow says the group has established a music educator award that will be presented for the first time next year.
Portnow announced the new award Thursday at the Grammy Foundation’s 15th annual Music Preservation Project event at the Saban Theatre.
