Hands-down the best teacher I've ever had. He taught me to believe in myself and my playing no matter what, in a very tumultuous point in my life. Wish my other band teachers would have been that cool, haha. He definitely deserves this award.

Very much needed, that affirmative action! The "majority" have been winning, inherently and with privilege, for a real long time.

Music education should be mandatory. If you don't play your part, it pulls the whole unit down.

YESSS HONEY YESSS!!! Mickey Smith Jr., is soooo blessed within his families' generation of inspirational African American leaders ... to carry on the tradition of "keep on going" until you focus/change you perspective to succeed.
Mr. Smith, has become the most popular leader/mentor ... who honestly connects with his positively motivated
students, within the "each one teach one" inspirational motivation movement, and the overall international/universal resounding beautiful sounds of music.
I agree ... with the student who said, "He's SUPER AWESOME!"
CONGRATULATIONS!!! Mickey Smith Jr., for being honored with this year's ...
Grammy Music Educator Award. WOW ... YOU ROCK!!!

We have yet to see Disney-Pixar's Soul, but Mr. Smith reminds me of Jamie Foxx's lead role in the film as Mr. Gardner, a middle school teacher with a dream to go big with his talent.
"We have a short time on this planet. So do something that will truly bring out the real you."

1:37: His "typically frugal grandmother Lillie Mae spent $400 on a used saxophone." That was probably a much inflated price and she wasn't familiar enough to know it, but hallelujah that the person in whom she invested rose to the occasion. Well done, Lillie Mae. See what your faith has brought to fruition. Oh that every investment paid off so well.
