Since 1876, Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) has advanced music in the disciplines of pedagogy, performance, composition and scholarly research. MTNA was founded by Theodore Presser and sixty-two colleagues from Delaware, Ohio, and is America’s oldest professional music association. Today, it is a not-for-profit organization of 24,000 independent and collegiate music professionals.
Ohio Music Teachers Association was founded in 1879 and incorporated in 1938. OMTA’s goals are to offer music students a variety of opportunities such as recitals, festivals, competitions, and master classes experiences. For the professional music teacher, OMTA nurtures the development of teachers through district programs/workshops and at state and national conferences. Our membership represents teachers on every instrument and voice.
