Reading for a more musical tomorrow

Reading for a more musical tomorrow.

Keeping up-to-date with current trends in the music-teaching industry is nearly as vital as staying in touch with fellow music contemporaries. Continued success as a music professional—whether a veteran or a novice—often rests on how conversant you are with cutting-edge developments, avant-garde and modern music-making styles, present-day concerns and issues, and the overall attitude occupying the teaching trade.

Two core publications serve MTNA members, and cover topics pertinent to today’s music teacher such as legal issues, advocacy and pedagogy:

  • American Music Teacher—the official journal of MTNA, providing articles, columns and reviews to inform, educate and challenge six times a year
  • MTNA e-Journal—an online-based journal containing informational articles supplemented with interactive features and extras
