Innovation in Music Education Award

The Slam Academy Innovation in Music Education Award (IMEA) was created in 2018 to showcase innovative uses of music technology in pre-college education. Slam Academy believes that educators who effectively embrace such technologies are preparing students for a future not only as musicians, but as technologically-astute citizens.

Recipients of the IMEA are chosen for being a leader in implementing technology in every class as a way to empower students to create, learn and communicate. Slam Academy has always offered students various vocational programs in music production, music theory and performance. The teachings of the recipient of the IMEA helps to nurture and prepare our Slam Academy students to round out their education with industry and career advancing concepts, including production, music theory, music business, composing, sound design, recording, engineering, and DJ’ing.
