Rhinegold Education and Music Sales are delighted to be sponsoring the award for Best School Music Department at the forthcoming Music Education Expo. If you’ve not heard about this amazing conference planned for March 2013, find out more here – there are great seminars, workshops and exhibitions planned for the two-day event which will be held at The Barbican in London, and it’s free for teachers to attend.
The Best School Music Department Award is to recognise primary/secondary music departments with a track record of innovative, inclusive and excellent music education. Judges will look for evidence that schools have a strong musical impact in their surrounding areas.
You can nominate your department or a school you think should be considered by emailing Music Teacher magazine (firstname.lastname@example.org).
There are a range of other awards to consider as well, which you can see here. Christopher Walters from Music Teacher says:
“These awards will recognise excellence and innovation in a sector that seldom hits the headlines other than at times of crisis. We hope that the awards will shine a much-deserved light on the very best of music education across every part of the business.”
The closing date for nominations is 31st January 2013. Good luck!
