Join us every Sunday night from 11pm to midnight as we start the new week with a rundown of what's going on in YOUR community.
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. Nominated teachers will be notified and invited to fill out an application.
One winner will be selected from 10 finalists each year to be recognized for their remarkable impact on their students' lives. The first award will be presented during GRAMMY Week 2014. The winner will be flown to Los Angeles to accept the award, attend the GRAMMY Awards, and receive a $10,000 honorarium. The nine finalists will receive a $1,000 honorarium. The honorariums provided to the winners are made possible by a grant from the Ford Motor Company Fund. This new partnership with the Ford Motor Company Fund expands their financial support of GRAMMY Foundation music education initiatives.
The nomination process is open now and the deadline for nominations is April 15, 2013. To view guidelines and/or nominate your favorite music educator, visit www.grammymusicteacher.com.
Thanks to my guest Kristen Madsen-Sr VP of the Grammy Foundation
Our goal is to give the gift of dance to children & adults with physical or cognitive impairments. We want to share the joy of this wonderful art of movement & music to uplift their spirits & bring happiness to their hearts. We will have our volunteer students there to help act as their “Dance Buddies” & think that this will help their sense of pride & make it more fun for them. Space is limited & a waiver must be signed before anyone will be allowed to participate.
The classes will be free of charge & consist of two 45-minute classes that will be split up by age groups & will be held once a quarter.
If you are interested or know of anyone or any group that would be, please e-mail me (Julie Kay Stallcup) directly at email@example.com. Thank you for allowing us to teach your children & we look forward to starting up our new endeavor of sharing the love of dance to our special needs friends!
Thank you & keep on dancing!
Thanks to my guest RDC owner/founder Julie Kay for sharing her passion for dancing, teaching and wanting to help kids w/disabilities at the above special event!
