AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce announced winners of its 18th Annual Greater Austin Business Awards at a ceremony held at the JW Marriott Austin last Thursday evening. From more than 300 companies nominated, an independent panel of judges comprised of local and national business representatives selected all winning companies. (The Most Uniquely Austin Award was selected by public voting.)

Live Music Tutor, a public benefit corporation, that provides institutional and individual music lessons, won The HID Global Innovation Award in recognition of its new ideas and processes for applying technology to music education. In attendance to receive the award were LMT employees, investors, board members and strategic partners.

"Realizing that many large and small tech companies in the Austin Metropolitan Area were eligible for this special recognition, winning the Innovation Award this year is huge for us and further validates the direction we're taking by merging music, education and the latest technology. As a small growing company with a global outreach we are also honored that the work of the entire LMT team received well deserved accolades for their contribution to our continued growth and expansion" says Harold Scott LMT Board Member.

"The ESSA law includes putting music back into schools as part of a well-rounded education, and LMT is using its technology and resources to supplement many programs in schools across the country regardless of budget constraints. The NAMM organization has been a champion for this very important ESSA law and the many benefits that music provides in support of a well- rounded education. We are proud to be able to help the many public, private, charter, virtual and homeschoolers have access that includes band, choral, orchestral, piano, and many more instruments," says Ted Gee president of LMT. "This award from the Austin Chamber and HID Global is timely and makes a statement about the work that we are doing!"
