TMTA: Teaching Music to All. Who We Are
The Tucson Music Teachers Association, founded in 1975, is comprised of over 100 diverse professional musicians seeking to provide outstanding musical instruction to students across southern Arizona. We come together for the mutual benefit of our students and our professional development. We are affiliated with the Music Teachers National Association and the Arizona State Music Teachers Association. MTNA was founded in 1876 to support music teaching and the art of music. All three associations are nonprofit organizations and MTNA is America’s oldest professional music association. Today MTNA’s 24,000 independent and collegiate music teachers are committed to furthering the art of music through programs that encourage and support teaching, performance, composition and scholarly research.
