Recognise the influence of Australian music teachers.

In 2017, with the help of Jay Laga’aia, Jessica Mauboy, Jimmy Barnes, Katie Noonan and Missy Higgins, let’s celebrate the exceptional influence music teachers have on our kids, setting them up for a bright future.

Now’s your chance to recognise your teacher by entering them in the ARIA Music Teacher of the Year Award.

Four ARIA nominees will be selected and partnered with an Aussie music legend who will visit your school or music tuition program, and help tell Australia about the incredible job they do.

One teacher will then receive an ARIA Award as part of the 2017 ARIA Award celebrations.

The ARIAs is the flagship event on the Australian music calendar – a celebration of all that is great in local music. The very first ARIA Awards were held in 1987 and hosted by Sir Elton John and winners included INXS, Crowded House and John Farnham. Since that time the ARIA Awards have developed into Australia’s pinnacle music Awards ceremony, forging careers and playing host to countless memorable moments and performances.
