Looking for local festivals? Informative lectures? Concert info? PPMTA can help!
PPMTA hosts a number of annual music festivals, which provide opportunities for students of local member and non-member teachers to: work toward a goal, hone their performance skills, expand their musical repertoire, receive valuable feedback, and enjoy possibly some friendly competition! Also, watch for our scholarships and awards!
AND as a service to you, we do our best to maintain a listing of upcoming local concerts, especially those which fit in with a tight family budget! We will also list local master classes and competitions not affiliated with PPMTA.
September 12, 2017 Our Welcome Back Potluck Brunch is a great way to kick off your teaching year. We will enjoy a business meeting that celebrates our 2017-2018 year, food, and fellowship. We will also draw to win a free student entry to each of our 2017-2018 festivals and free music will go to another lucky winner! The brunch will be hosted by the PPMTA Board Members at Graner Music.
