Semifinalists For the 2017 Grammy Music Educator Award Revealed
Twenty-five music teachers have been selected for the 2017 Music Educator Award, and award created by the Recording Academy and Grammy Foundation, to recognize “current educators who have made a significant and lasting contribution to the field of music education.” Last year’s winner, Phillip Riggs, from the North Carolina School of Science and Math in Durham, North Carolina, said it was an honor he shares with all music educators. Riggs was the third recipient of the award and said it has helped him “cast a wider net,” opening up opportunities “I didn’t know I’d be able to do.” This year’s 25 semifinalists come from 25 cities across 16 states. The winner will be flown to Los Angeles to be recognized during Grammy Week, and will attend the 59th Grammy Awards ceremony, as well as other Grammy Foundation events.
