. . . Kent Knappenberger – a/k/a Mr. K – for his win of the Grammys’ Music Teacher of the Year Award! This is the very first year that the award has been given. There were thousands of nominations and Kent topped them all. Kent teaches at Westfield Academy and Central School in Westfield, NY. You can easily see from the piece presented on CBS This Morning on Tuesday, January 21st, that Kent clearly loves teaching, loves teaching music, and loves teaching his kids. He believes that ALL people have musical ability of some sort – it just needs to be brought out and to the top.
