In 1876, Theodore Presser and 62 of his colleagues founded Music Teachers National Association with the purpose of advancing the value of music study and music making to society while supporting the careers and professionalism of music teachers.
Today, MTNA has cemented its role as an organization essential not only to the professional and individual well-being of music-teaching professionals, but also a vital partner in their growth and development. It provides both a collective voice for teachers worldwide and a powerful alliance with a highly prestigious and influential group. Members reap the rewards of collaboration, continuity and connection throughout the lifetime of their careers.
Music Teachers National Association supports the careers of studio music teachers by offering continuing education, small business resources, peer to peer networking, student performance opportunities and much more.
