LMTA Save Our Students Fund

 Playathon Logo

Due to the recent catastrophic flood in southeastern Louisiana, LMTA is requesting funds for tuition assistance and repair or replacement of pianos for music teachers and students. If you would like to help, send a check, payable to LMTA, to our treasurer, Teresa Thomason, 609 W. Pointe Dr., Alexandria, LA 71303-2383. Be sure to write SOS (Save Our Students) on your check. This contribution will go directly to teachers and students, but it is NOT tax-deductible.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution, go online to MTNA Foundation. Be sure to designate your gift as Benevolence Fund, and it will go directly to teachers and students.

Many, many thanks for your consideration.

Membership Fees Assistance

The LMTA Save Our Students Fund was established in 2005 in response to the devastating effects of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita on Louisiana teachers and students.  After a brief period as the Students Helping Students Fund, the fund has once again returned to its original designation as a disaster relief fund due to the constant threat of natural disasters to Louisiana and throughout the country.

During the current economic crisis in our county, supporting teachers in time of financial stress is also of serious concern to LMTA.  In response to this concern for its members, LMTA will subsidize membership fees for two independent teachers in Louisiana for the current 2016-17 school year.  The subsidy will include MTNA, LMTA, and local affiliate membership dues.

To be considered for the assistance, teachers must complete the Application for Membership Fees Assistance and mail it to Hannah Mayo, 106 S. St. Louis St., Lafayette, LA  70506, postmarked no later than October 1.  Emailed applications will be accepted:  hannahemayo@gmail.com.  Recipients will be chosen by a committee and notified by October 30.


The application form is fillable on-line.
After completing the application, select “print.” 
On the print screen, click the “pdf” tab and select “mail pdf.”
If your computer does not have this option, print the completed form and mail it to Hannah Mayo. 
Save a copy for your own records.
