Young Professionals

As if life isn’t challenging enough. You are preparing for a successful career as a professional music teacher in an ever-evolving and competitive age of digital dependency and technological influence. MTNA's Young Professionals programs serve as your connection to the larger established community of long-time music professionals—a community committed to and interested in inspiring and developing its future members and the music-teaching profession as a whole.

Our goal:

To be the foundation of educational, musical, social and professional experience for music teachers throughout their course of formal study and to help open doors through professional opportunities and career options in the field of music.


Connecting with Other Young Professionals

The MTNA Collegiate Symposium is the perfect place to connect with others who are beginning their music-teaching careers. Held each school year in a different location, collegiate members from across the country come together to present sessions, network and learn more about the profession.

Making the MTNA Connection

Establishing a collegiate chapter  is the first step in connecting to MTNA. Each chapter must have at least three student members, as well as a sponsor or advisor who is an active member of the state and national associations. Students must be enrolled in a college or university to become a member of a collegiate chapter.
