On May 3, NAfME corporate member CMA Foundation honored 30 music educators during Teacher Appreciation Week with the 2022 Music Teachers of Excellence Awards. This sixth annual recognition celebrates educators for their commitment and impact on the lives of students and the communities they serve.

According to the press release, “the CMA Foundation will officially kick off the CMA Awards season on Wednesday, October 19, holding its sixth Music Teachers of Excellence Awards in Nashville. Along with a night of celebration and recognition, the CMA Foundation will also invest $150,000 total to all of this year’s recipients.
