Music Educators Associations

If you are running a private music teaching practice, it’s important for you to stay connected to your peers, stay up to date on events that might help your students and take advantage of professional development opportunities. Additionally, parents and other clients with discerning tastes will generally take this sort of membership as a sign that you take your profession seriously. Most regions have music educators associations or something similar, that do just that!
