What our members are saying
"As a new member of MSMTA and MTNA, I have already made many connections with other teachers who are very willing to offer advice to a young, inexperienced piano teacher. As I am finishing up my Masters in piano performance, I am feeling prepared to enter the realm of teaching piano, not only with what I learned from school but from what I have had the opportunity to learn from MTNA online seminars and conferences. Since joining MTNA and MSMTA, I know that when I am faced with a new problem or situation when teaching, I am surrounded by fellow teachers and friends who are willing to offer insights and techniques from their own experiences and research." - Cassandra Bak
