Welcome to the Iowa Music Teachers Association! Iowa Music Teachers Association Active Membership offers a mentoring program for young teachers and those who are new to the Association.

IMTA STATE AUDITIONS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL A LATER DATE. WE WILL POST ON THIS WEBSITE AS SOON AS WE HAVE MORE INFORMATION. PLEASE LET YOUR STUDENTS AND PARENTS KNOW THAT YOUR SAFETY AND WELFARE ARE OUR FIRST CONCERN. SECONDLY, WE WILL FORM A PLAN FOR A FUTURE DATE SO EVERYONE RECEIVES THE RECOGNITION DESERVED FOR THEIR HARD WORK!
-Amber Riggenbach, State IMTA Auditions Chair
Iowa State University has informed us today (March 12) that they have canceled our building use for IMTA Auditions/Executive Board meeting this Saturday, March 14. IMTA State Auditions and the IMTA Board meeting are postponed! Any contingency plans are up in the air at this point as all of us are just scrambling to get this information to IMTA members and students and get through this busy day. You will hear directly from me when a new plan is in place for the executive board meeting.
As you can imagine, we are all upset and disappointed about this situation for students, parents and teachers! No decision about rescheduling or alternate plans for Auditions has been made at this point. You will hear directly from the State Auditions Chair (email@example.com) of any further developments regarding State Auditions.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Let’s all keep calm and carry on. My best to you~
Linda Benson, President, IMTA
