CINCINNATI, Ohio — Debra Gamero of Sandy, Utah, was recently honored by Music Teachers National Association as an MTNA Foundation Fellow at the organization's national conference in New York in March.
Gamero, a nationally certified teacher of music, has been an independent piano teacher in Sandy for more than 40 years and served as the Utah MTA president from 1996 to 1998. During her term, she organized "mini-conventions" to take the convention experience to those in the outer areas of the state. Gamero cofounded the Sandy chapter of UMTA, was chapter president twice and helped develop the AIM Student Evaluation program. As state chair of Future Artists in Music, she encourages teens to stay involved in AIM and use their talents to serve the community.
The MTNA Foundation Fellow program recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to music teaching. The award is bestowed when a peer or group of peers donates $1,000 to the MTNA Foundation Fund in an individual's name.
