Conference Info

Provide an excellent opportunity for professional music teachers to  improve teaching techniques, gain familiarity with new technology,  network with other professionals and learn about the newest publications  available for performance and reference. OhioMTA supports its  membership by offering an annual Fall Conference. Additionally, many of  the eight individual districts offer continuing education  periodically in the form of Workshops, Program Meetings and Conferences.  OhioMTA members are also encouraged to attend the MTNA National  Conference and can participate at a reduced rate for members. 

OhioMTA  State Conference planning usually begins two years prior to annual  event with the formation of a Conference Committee. Individual Districts  rotate hosting the annual conference and are responsible for the  operations, site coordination, conference artist and program selection.  Annually a Commissioned Composer is chosen as well as Presenters for  individual sessions. For details regarding these programs and how to  submit a proposal please select Proposal Submission.
