The Oscars of the music education world!*

The Music Teacher Awards for Excellence will return on 25 February 2016, in a fabulous black-tie gala dinner and ceremony at the Jumeirah Carlton Hotel, Knightsbridge. Created to celebrate excellence in music and performing arts education, awards will be presented  in 13 categories, from new products and resources to hubs, music departments and individual contributions to the sector.

Over 280 industry guests including teachers, hub leaders, musicians and VIPs – representing the best and brightest in performing arts education – will enjoy a champagne reception, live music, three course meal, ceremony and performances, headlined by revered brass quintet The Locke Consort as they celebrate their 50th anniversary year.

Join us as we celebrate the great and the good in the sector and mingle with colleagues and special guests, share the excitement with finalists and perhaps take home an award! Demand for tickets is always high, so please ensure you check back in November when booking opens to avoid missing out.

We are delighted to announce the shortlist for the 2016 awards! View the finalists here.
