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.
