Nominations for the 2018 ARIA Music Teacher of The Year Award are now open

ARIA (the Australian Recording Industry Association) is excited to announce that nominations for the second ARIA Music Teacher of the Year Award are now open.

This Award is open to any teacher working on a music program in a school, kindergarten, early childhood centre, youth centre or private tuition music school in Australia. Anyone from around the country – from students, school administrators, to friends, neighbours and family – can nominate their music teacher for consideration to win an ARIA.

At last year’s ARIA Awards, ARIA Award winner Josh Pyke awarded the inaugural ARIA Music Teacher of the Year Award to Renee McCarthy from Woodcroft College in South Australia. She was one of four finalist music teachers from four different states of Australia who were visited by ARIA Artist Ambassadors Jessica Mauboy, Josh Pyke, Lior and Missy Higgins. These finalists were chosen from more than 1,600 initial nominations submitted from across Australia.

The ARIA Music Teacher of The Year Award was introduced to recognise music teachers for their passion and hard work in providing Australian children with a better education and the chance to play and enjoy music. There is growing recognition worldwide of the value of creativity and the arts to improve education standards and build a better connection for students to their school life in general. The Song Room is helping to close the education equity gap in many communities in regional, remote and metro areas through its arts education programs which are run in partnership with schools.

Entries are now open and a shortlist of nominees will be announced at the ARIA Nominations Event in October. Each shortlisted ARIA nominated teacher will be partnered with one of the Artist Ambassadors who will visit the school, help celebrate their success and tell their story. A public voting process will then be conducted culminating in the presentation of the winner at The 2018 ARIA Awards in November.
