Music educator conferences provide stimulating and inspiring talks, workshops, master classes, and recitals, as well as opportunities for networking with colleagues.

MTNA National Conference

Held each year in early spring in various sites around the country, the MTNA Conference brings together teachers, musicians, and pedagogues from all over the United States and Canada.

OMTA State Conference

The state conference attracts teachers from Oregon, Washington, and California and is generally held in the summer. Thanks to generous support from the Oregon Community Foundation, there is financial assistance available to help OMTA members attend the conference.
