Music for Everyone

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.
