These Awards took place at London’s Barbican as part of ABRSM’s prestigious Shine event and where hosted by singer and pianist Myleene Klass, who is also a presenter on Classic FM. The Award was presented to Linda by former music teacher and twice Mercury-nominated singer Laura Mvula at the ABRSM’s prestigious Shine event, which is held to showcase the very best in music education by shining a spotlight on the winning music teachers, as well as the next generation of performers and teachers. Myleene Klass said: “Music teachers are heroes – and without their hard work and dedication many children would not experience the joy of making and listening to music. As part of Classic FM’s 25th birthday celebrations, we’re delighted to team up with Casio and ABRSM as we honour Linda and four other inspirational music teachers through our awards.” Linda Filby-Borrett said: “I have been teaching singing over 40 years and consider I have had a blessed life doing what I love. This award is the icing on the cake.”
