IMTA’s proprietary repertoire list offers an extensive list of over 14,000 piano solo pieces at six different performance levels to assist with programming for your students.

Active members who teach in any area of music enjoy all benefits of membership and are entitled to participate in all IMTA activities, vote and hold office. Please join the many musicians and teachers who have benefitted from our important connections and ongoing professional development.



Pat Luiken, a valued member of IMTA who passed away a couple of years ago had a large piano music library.  If anyone is interested in purchasing the library, please contact her daughter Jennifer at:   They are in the process of clearing out the family home and there are an estimated 300 pieces of music from beginner to advanced.  Great filler for your library, especially if you are a new teacher!


Login is now available for all paid members. You will be able to access documents, the repertoire list and practice registrations for IMTA festivals and auditions.  Remember, all student information can be deleted or edited so have fun with this up until your deadline date for your events.

PHISHING SCAMS: Many of you have contacted the president that you are receiving questionable emails from me or other officers.  This can’t be stopped but you will only receive REAL content about REAL IMTA issues from officers.  We will not ask for money or a quick call.  Always check the address behind the name, it is most likely someone you don’t know.  Do NOT respond to these. Instead, be proactive and turn them in!

HOW TO Report phishing emails and texts.

These people will have their emails shut down or be dealt with in other ways. Since there is nothing we can do to stop them before they send an email, let’s work to shut them down!
