The Foundation Award was established to honor private teachers of instruments and voice that have provided quality teaching, leadership, and passion for excellence over a sustained period of time in Texas. The high level of performance by Texas school musicians is in no small part due to students individually studying their craft with expert guidance.
In this initial year of the Foundation Award, nominations were submitted by the Board of Trustees of the Foundation. These honorees are considered to be iconic teachers in Texas. Going forward, nominations will be accepted from teachers throughout Texas as they recognize the exceptional private teaching in their schools and communities.
