The Edmonds Music Teachers Association (EMTA) is a non-profit organization of private music teachers committed to the advancement of musical knowledge and education by fostering professional standards, networking, and promoting the art of music in our community. EMTA is affiliated with the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) and affiliated with the Washington State Music Teacher Association (WSMTA) as a local chapter.
Each year, the Washington State Music Teacher Association (WSMTA) presents a conference with presentations and workshops, masterclasses, honors recitals, meetings, information sessions about state programs, Washington Winners recital, Young Composers Project and Commissioned Composers recital, and an awards banquet. It is a wonderful opportunity for continued education and to visit with friends and colleagues from across the state. We had a number of members currently attending the 2019 WSMTA Conference from June 19 to 21, 2019 at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA. EMTA had two students performing in the state recital: Jane Wang and David Suiter, both students of EMTA member, Jensina Oliver. Our Young Composers Project representatives were: Jayce Brown, Grade 3, student of Marie William-Mergler, and Adam Lewinsohn, Grade 4, student of Frances Goei. Angela Tang, student of EMTA member Shih-Yi Kuan, represented District I in the non-keyboard division.
