Meetings & Monthly Programs
Meetings are currently being held virtually on Zoom until further notice. Please contact President Tom Vos at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us at our virtual meeting.
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.

Our meetings typically take place on the second Monday of the month (from September through April) at the historic First Congregation Church in Crystal Lake. Park in the lot to the right of the building and enter through the double green doors at the Office entrance at the rear of the building.
We meet in the Fellowship Hall, located on the main level. Go up the short set of stairs, and ask the person at the desk for directions.
Our business meetings begin at 9:00 AM, with monthly programs following at approximately 10:00 AM. (Note: We end our season with a luncheon in May and begin our season with a planning meeting in June, locations TBA. There are no meetings in July, August, and December.)
