Evelyn Grace Academy


Twice Mercury-nominated British singer-songwriter and former music teacher Laura Mvula has joined Casio’s ‘Action in Music’ initiative to launch Classic FM’s Music Teacher of the Year Awards with Casio and ABRSM.

Celebrating the best of music education in the UK, and raising awareness of its importance in the classroom, the Awards will honour five teachers who have contributed significantly to the musical lives of young people across the country.

Looking back at her own education in music, Laura visited the Evelyn Grace Academy in Brixton where she used to be a pupil to launch the campaign in schools and encourage pupils to nominate the teachers that have inspired them to learn more about music, before she joins the judging panel of industry experts who will select the winners in July 2017.
