Leading music education technology company MusicFirst was presented with two of the highest music education accolades during the 2016 NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif., the Technology Institute for Music Education (TI:ME) Award for Outstanding Contributions to Technology in Music Education, and the School Band and Orchestra Best Tools for Schools Award for Best Teaching Tool for Intermediate Students.
“We are grateful and thrilled to be recognized by two of the finest entities in music education. MusicFirst strives to produce products that will have a positive impact on both teachers and students, and receiving these honors is a testament to our efforts on making a difference in thousands of schools across the world,” said MusicFirst Director, Dr. James Frankel.
The TI:ME Award for Outstanding Contributions to Technology in Music Education is given by TI:ME board of directors and officers after conducting a survey with membership for feedback on companies whose products they are using and most impressed with in the classroom.
The School Band and Orchestra Best Tools for Schools Awards are determined annually by a jury of discerning music teachers from around the United States who visit exhibitors during the Winter NAMM Show, and evaluate their products for their practical application in the music classroom. MusicFirst was honored in the category of Best Teaching Tool for Intermediate Students.
Additionally, MusicFirst has been nominated for the Best Digital/Technological Resource Award for the Music Teacher Awards for Excellence in the United Kingdom.
