Please don’t miss out on the opportunity to attend as many of the MMTA Piano Contest Materials Workshops as possible! While these workshops do provide an opportunity for teachers to learn about the current contest list music, they offer SO MUCH MORE!! Even if you have no one or only a few students who will actually participate in the Contest, you will walk away from these workshops with new insights, inspiration, and know-how as you hear from our fine presenters about MANY aspects of teaching. These workshops are the best bargain in town!
(Please note that attendance at four workshops per year count as one point toward MTNA Recertification (NCTM) under “Attendance at local pedagogical programs”).
