Louisiana Teachers Association



 LMTA has decided to suspend all Rallies at this time. With more universities moving to online instruction and not allowing student gatherings on campus, there are too many unknown factors to proceed with the Rally event this year.

I hope at a later date that the board can brainstorm together to offer some type of make-up opportunity for students to earn their points for this year. But right now, there are bigger issues that we all must face for our personal and professional lives.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding at the time of this difficult decision.

The purpose of the Louisiana Music Teachers Association is to further the art of music and to promote the growth and professional development of its members by providing programs that encourage and support teaching, performance, composition and research.

The Louisiana Music Teachers Association is a non profit organization of teaching professionals in both independent studios and academic institutions who are interested in promoting high quality music teaching and performance in our state. We have been proudly affiliated with the Music Teachers National Association since 1952. If you are a music teacher in Louisiana and do not belong to LMTA, we encourage you to avail yourself of the many opportunities for you and your students. 

As a member of LMTA, you will join MTNA, the nation’s oldest professional music organization. You will be entitled to all MTNA membership services, which include insurance programs, workshops, member discounts and student competitions. You will also receive a subscription to American Music Teacher, MTNA’s award-winning magazine. Click here to join.

Our local districts are the strength of LMTA. We have nine groups throughout the state offering music festivals, competitions, and workshops in addition to networking opportunities.

The Independent Music Teachers Forum serves as a resource for teachers, providing information about business issues as well as pedagogical techniques. IMTF encourages teachers to share ideas and provides sessions at the annual state convention to discuss current topics of interest. Visit the IMTF page to read articles by teachers from around the state.

LMTA offers a certification program for music teachers and provides the opportunity for national certification through MTNA. Certified teachers are recognized as individuals with high professional standards and a commitment to excellence in their field.
