Music Educator of the Year Award

About the Award

Once every year, JC Music selects an outstanding educator to receive the Music Educator of the Year Award. This award recognizes their achievements in their classrooms and their contributions to music education in general. Educators from all over CT gather at our annual Educator Appreciation Dinner, where the award is presented. Our first award was presented in 2009 to John Miller, and we have presented an award each year since.

JC Music has been servicing schools in Connecticut for over thirty years. As a family owned business, we are able to provide personal service for each school we work with. JC Music works closely with educators throughout the state as a resource to help them in any way possible!

JC Music has four Educational Representatives that serve music educators and their schools all over Connecticut. Our service benefits music educators, students, parents and schools.
