Telstra and ARIA are excited to announce the return of The Telstra ARIA Music Teacher Award for 2020.
This special ARIA Award, launched in partnership with The Song Room in 2017, recognises the incredible contribution of music teachers throughout Australia. It rewards teachers for their hard work, creativity and dedication to their students and wider community. By celebrating our amazing music teachers, it also helps to shine a light on the importance of music to education and student engagement.
Behind most artists who make it to the ARIA stage is a dedicated music teacher or mentor. The Telstra ARIA Music Teacher Award was introduced by ARIA, in partnership with The Song Room and Telstra, 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.
Music and creativity help improve education standards, well-being and build a stronger connection for students to their school life. In 2020, celebrate the exceptional influence music teachers have on our kids, setting them up for a bright future.
