For more than 134 years, the Indiana Music Teachers Association (IMTA) has fostered the instruction, study and performance of music. More than 300 individuals throughout the state of Indiana join 24,000 colleagues nationwide to form a truly unique community of music professionals.
Member programs provide a multitude of opportunity for professional growth. Certification programs recognize pedagogical competence and promote the highest standards of music teaching. State conferences offer master classes, informational sessions and an opportunity to share ideas with fellow teachers. Competitions encourage high standards of performance and composition among young musicians. Our print resources include the Achievement in Music Syllabus, IMT Newsletter, and the Directory of Lecturers and Clinicians.
IMTA continues to support efforts to retain music as an essential element in a complete education. Through commissioning grants, we foster the creation of new music and through District and Local Association programs, we support independent music teachers and defend their traditional workplaces.
