Letter from the President

As President of the Wisconsin Music Teachers Association, I  welcome you to our website. Enjoy your visit while exploring the many facets of the site.

You can access information about our organization by clicking on our keyboard to the left.  Our site is particularly designed for current WMTA members and your students.  We also have resources available for those who are interested in knowing more about us.

Founded in 1910, WMTA has steadfastly continued in its goals to develop, maintain, and recognize high standards of music instruction and performance in Wisconsin. As an affiliate of the Music Teachers National Association, WMTA shares these goals with musicians in all 50 states.  Founded in 1876, MTNA is the oldest professional nonprofit music teachers association in the United States.  WMTA endorses the mission of MTNA which is "to advance the value of music study and music making to society and to support the professionalism of music teachers".

By providing organization and activities at local, state, divisional, and national levels, we work together to accomplish goals which could not be achieved by an individual or by an organization which exists at only one level. Our state has 16 active local associations which provide regular meetings and programs, networking and so much more.

As teachers, we tend to be highly independent people.  As members of WMTA, we also need to be collaborative.  Plan to be involved in any way you are able, but especially at the local association level where strong relationships and innovation begin. 

I encourage all current and prospective WMTA members to attend our state and national conferences.   Conferences are a wonderful way to freshen up our teaching and interact with other members of our profession.  And our students will love the surprise!

  • To present a conference session proposal for the WMTA conference, sponsorship information or exhibitor rates, please  contact Mara Beckman, Vice-President, Conventions at maraannie@hotmail.com.

I hope you will bookmark this site and visit again in the future to see what's new in WMTA since your last visit.  We are a vital and growing music teachers' organization.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  I am here to serve you.
