A Grammy for a music teacher

If you’ve been dispirited by the constant cuts in music education in recent years, perhaps you can find some hope in today’s awarding of a Grammy to an upstate New York teacher for excellence in music teaching.

There were over 30,000 entries for the award, the first time it’s been given. None of the 10 finalists came from the Midwest, for the record.

He teaches at a small 6th grade through 12th grade school with only 300 students.
