The Music Educator Award was established to recognize current educators (kindergarten through college, public and private schools) who have made a significant and lasting contribution to the field of music education and who demonstrate a commitment to the broader cause of maintaining music education in the schools. A joint partnership and presentation of the Recording Academy and GRAMMY Museum, the recipient will be recognized during GRAMMY® Week 2021.

Tiffany Cox is Lake Worth Community High School's  director of bands. She attended Florida State University and graduated with her Bachelor of Arts degree in Jazz Trombone in 2011. She started teaching in Palm Beach County in 2012 as an elementary music teacher and completed and received her Master's Degree in 2013.

She came to LWHS in 2017 and accepted the challenge of rebuilding our band program from the ground up. Since her arrival, the band has grown from nine members to more than seventy-five students. Ms. Cox prioritizes community involvement and musical excellence in the Trojan Sound and last year the band had a record breaking season in which they earned their first Superior rating, several First Place trophies and competed in the State Marching Band competition.

Ms. Cox is currently a doctoral candidate at Florida Atlantic University and will graduate in December with her PhD in Curriculum and Instruction. Her dissertation research investigates the systematic marginalization of women in secondary instrumental music careers. 

Congratulations Ms. Cox.
