WYNCOTE, PA, March 1, 2007 — TI:ME (The Technology Institute for Music Educators) has selected the winner of its “Teacher of the Year” award, an annual distinction that recognizes educators who have demonstrated outstanding abilities in the area of music education technology. This year’s recipient was Michael Fein, a high school music educator from Haverford High School in Havertown, Pennsylvania.

Mr. Fein received an all expenses paid trip to Columbus and a plaque and letter of recognition that were presented during an awards ceremony at the recent Ohio Music Educators conference in January 2007. The prize package was courtesy of IAEKM (International Association of Electronic Keyboard Manufacturers).

Chosen from a distinguished group of educators who have shown their dedication to integrating technology in the music classroom, Mr. Fein commented, “TI:ME is an excellent organization that provides teachers with wonderful resources to help improve their teaching by integrating technology into their music classrooms. I am extremely honored to receive the 2007 Mike Kovins Teacher of the Year Award from such a superb organization.”

TI:ME executive director John Dunphy notes, “Mike Fein is an outstanding role model for all music and arts educators. His mastery of music and audio tools, and exciting integration of technology in the classroom impacts his school, students and community. In fact Fein’s digital recording program at Haverford High School has effectively doubled the number of students participating in the school’s music program.”

This is the first year that this award of excellence was presented in honor of ardent TI:ME supporter and past IAEKM president Mike Kovins, who passed away last year. TI:ME and IAEKM renamed the award for Kovins to recognize his life-long support of music education. On hand to present the award was his wife, Katherine Kovins.
