Grand Prairie Music Teachers Association was founded in 1958 as a local chapter of the Texas Music Teachers Association (TMTA) and the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA). Its purpose is to advance musical knowledge and appreciation and advocate for the art of music. We uphold high standards in music education and performance, foster student knowledge and skill in music, and support worthwhile musical activities which contribute to the cultural growth of the community.
Grand Prairie MTA offers local, state, and national opportunities for your students to engage with others in the pursuit of musical endeavors. Local festivals, the TMTA Theory program, and the Texas state TMTA convention are a few of the events for your students.
As private teachers, we are often isolated in our work. It can be difficult to connect with other professionals in our field. The local teacher association connects us with other instructors and gives us the chance to collaborate, encourage, and network.
GPMTA welcomes all teachers actively engaged in teaching of music. Membership begins at the national level: MTNA.org.
When you access their website and complete your membership application, just choose Texas as your state and Grand Prairie as your local association.
