Meetings & Monthly Programs
Our monthly meetings provide an opportunity for us to discuss upcoming events and other organization business, as well as networking with other teachers. A monthly program follows the business meeting.
Monthly programs are geared toward the interests of the independent music teacher. Topics include teaching tips, technology know-how, learning about new repertoire, and scholarly presentations on composers and pedagogy.
Feel free to drop by and visit one of our meetings - we'd love to get to know you! See the listing below for our current schedule of meetings and programs.
