Join Us

You can join the Maine Music Teachers Association by joining the MTNA, the Music Teachers’ National Association. The National Association collects dues payments on behalf of the MaineMTA and this is reflected in the invoice you receive when you pay your MTNA dues.  It can look a little confusing, but hey, you’re a music teacher, you’ll figure it out! Once we receive notification from the national association that you have joined, we’ll send you (by email, of course) information on how to access the members-only portions of this website. Primarily, that consists of membership contact information.

You can jump to the MTNA membership page right here.
