MTNA—Your Partner In Teaching

For well over a century, MTNA has been the backbone for a collaborative community of music-teaching professionals, connecting both the seasoned educator and those at the beginning of their career.

MTNA membership does more than simply complement your career as a music professional—it supports, supplements and shapes it. It empowers music teachers nationwide to become better educators through networking, leadership, mentoring and educational opportunities.

Join today to make MTNA your partner in teaching!

MTNA Membership Delivers:

  • Peer Connections—a network of outlets, forums and channels for like-minded individuals in the music profession to collaborate and communicate, both locally and nationally.
  • Ongoing Education—conferences, events and advice on teaching tips and pedagogy, technology and web trends, master classes and informational sessions.
  • Invaluable Resources—access to countless benefits, from Certification, publications and consultation services to competitions, teacher enrichment grants and insurance.


he 2022 MTNA National Conference will be held March 26–30, 2022. This conference will be like no other ever presented by MTNA. It will not only be the most inclusive conference ever, it will also be MTNA’s very first “hybrid” conference.

There are two ways for you to attend:

  • The first option is the traditional MTNA conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the Hilton Minneapolis and the Minneapolis Convention Center for those who want the total experience that comes only through an in-person event.
  • The second option is a non-traditional virtual conference at the same time featuring curated sessions and events, some in real-time, from the in-person event for those who prefer the conference experience without leaving their home.
