The Tucson Music Teachers Association (TMTA) is proud to be an affiliate of the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA). The MTNA was founded by Theodore Presser and sixty-two colleagues in Delaware, Ohio. MTNA's mission is to advance the value of music study and music making to society and to support the professionalism of music teachers. The association maintains two subsidiary programs: MTNA Professional Certification Program and the MTNA Foundation Fund. The Professional Certification Program exists to improve the level of professionalism within the field of applied music teaching and helps the public readily identify competent music teachers in their communities. The MTNA Foundation Fund supports programs to financially assist teachers and students with their educational pursuits while providing an opportunity for individual and corporate support of MTNA and its programs.
To become a member of TMTA, you also join the MTNA and the Arizona State Music Teachers Association (ASMTA). When you join online at the MTNA website, you will select "Arizona" from a drop down list, then select "Tucson MTA" from a second drop down list.
