Brooklyn native Alfredo Hernandez is awarded the ETM 2023 music teacher of the year
Alfredo Hernandez, a music teacher at All Hallows High School in the Bronx, has been named the 2023 ETM Music Teacher of the Year! Prior to Mr. Hernandez joining the school in 2021, it did not have a music teacher for several decades until partnering with ETM. Mr. Hernandez quickly built a comprehensive music program impacting all students and currently serves as the All Hallows’ Music Technology teacher as well as the Director of the All Hallows’ Modern Band. Through the music programs that he created, Mr. Hernandez has taught students who have never played an instrument, inspiring them to find their musical talents.
