Music Teachers Association of California
I have officially joined and become a member of the MTAC and its Temecula branch. This is the organization that administers the Certificate of Merit program that many students in California participate in. Typically after one year of study, students will be ready for this standardized test.
California Association of Professional Music Teachers
I will be attending the annual CAPMT conference held in Industry Hills next weekend from Feb 5-7. This is an important professional development event where music teachers in California meet and exchange ideas. There will be workshops, masterclasses, and lectures given by prominent musicians from all over the country. The CAPMT is a branch of the Music Teachers National Association.
