Last year, Renée McCarthy from Woodcroft College in South Australia had the experience of a lifetime, becoming the first ever ARIA Music Teacher of the Year.
She was one of four finalist music teachers from four states of Australia who were visited by ARIA Artist Ambassadors Jessica Mauboy, Josh Pyke, Lior and Missy Higgins and were in the running to win an ARIA.
“The presentation of this award was a highlight of the 2017 ARIAs, and was able to shine a light on the incredible, inspiring and impactful work being done by thousands of music teachers across Australia,” ARIA Chief Executive Dan Rosen said.
“Many of the greatest musicians of our time credit their teachers with being a critical factor in their success, but it’s much more than that, for many children their music or art teacher has helped them develop a sense of belonging and purpose,” The Song Room CEO Simon Gipson said.
