When my husband and I moved to PA 30 years ago, I joined MLMTA, at which time the group was so small that we held our meetings at our homes. I was not only warmly received into the group, but I was given so much support and encouragement in every aspect of teaching. It is impossible for me to put into words my gratitude to this group of teachers from whom I have learned so much. The meetings, master classes, and festivals provide a learning ground for any student or teacher to go on learning in the world of music. I do believe that MLMTA has also had a very positive influence on the parents of our students in that the high musical standards we set forth to those who come to us are what parents are looking for in a good teacher. Thanks MLMTA!!
Although I have only been a member since 2017, the knowledge I have gained since joining MLMTA is immeasurable. One can learn so much from talking with some of the longer standing members about their methods and their experience in the teaching profession.
MLMTA helped me to get started in my private teaching practice with a variety of activities offered for beginner through advanced students. The programs at the meetings offer teachers a continuous stream of learning and provide new ideas that inspire. Seasoned teachers, expert pedagogues, and performers share a wealth of knowledge at the monthly meetings. Consequently, my students all benefit from that.
