Workshops, and Other Events
The PMTA hosts member social events, workshops, and other teacher/studio development events annually. As well, the PMTA hosts occasional concerts by guest musicians.
Social events are held at least twice a year. These events are an opportunity for our members to get to know one another and build connections with other teachers in the community.
Workshops often focus on music teaching techniques and are held at least once a year. Recent workshops have been focused around piano hand positions and hand shape and teaching approaches for different personality types.
Teacher/Studio Development events focus on the business of teaching. Recent development events have discussed contract building for teachers, promotional ideas for studios, and building a studio website.
