This popular program is really three programs in one!
The Music Achievement Award Program encourages ALL the students in the teacher's studio, especially the "everyday" students, to continue their music study and to strive to achieve goals that will not only help them become better musicians, but also will enhance their love and appreciation of music.
The MTNA Music Study Award motivates students by acknowledging their commitment to music lessons. As students progress through music lessons, this program offers certificates celebrating their accomplishments. These awards recognize years of music study.
The MTNA Studio Festival Program will allow students to soar musically in a nationally sponsored event, held in your own studio. This program is another way to showcase your students' musical talents in an exciting and meaningful performance opportunity. In addition to enjoying a stimulating performance experience, your students will receive a supportive critique from an experienced musician.
MTNA members have access to a number of publications from Pedagogy Saturday Proceedings to a tax guide to the 100-year history of MTNA.
My membership in IMTA has given me so many opportunities for continuing education that in turn helped guide my quest to be a successful Independent Music Teacher. Most of all, I have benefited from the relationships I have developed with other members, as friends and professionals, who share my love of teaching and piano.
Linda Allebach, NCTM
I value my membership with IMTA because through my local chapter and by attending conferences and workshops, I have gained incredible mentors and have found new ways to keep my piano studio active.
Membership in IMTA has been the best thing for me to stay current, connected, and invigorated. I love the opportunity to collaborate with other teachers and use IMTA's resources to help me be the best teacher possible. As a parent, as well as a teacher, I really appreciated being able to use IMTA to find the best teacher for my own children.
When I first moved to Iowa, IMTA helped me "find my legs" by meeting many of my Dubuque-area and state colleagues. It has provided me with professional development through adjudication of festivals, performance at the 2016 State Conference, and certification. I am so grateful for the opportunities IMTA has provided me and hope that others take advantage of the great benefits of membership in our organization.
Dr. Luke Tyler
As a private teacher with a degree in NOTHING, IMTA has provided so much more than a place for students to compete. State conference, networking, workshops, festivals and lots of good people who share their passion for carrying on the legacy of the musical arts.
I love searching for repertoire selections on the IMTA website! It's so easy to search for song titles, collections, pieces by composer, etc. It's also nice to pull up an anthology or collection and see the titles and levels for them. I know a lot of hard work was put into the website, and it was well spent! It is such an excellent addition for members... thank you!
