In 1876, a group of music teachers met in Ohio to form an organization dedicated to making music available to every American. They called it the Music Teachers National Association.
Today, almost 140 years later, MTNA’s mission continues. We move forward because of the dedication of each and every MTNA member. It’s your commitment to our noble mission and your big, bold dreams that make MTNA such a profound force for good in music education. Thank-you for everything you do; I’m honored to be your colleague.
Many of you have written to ask about the election results. I wrote Dr. Gary Ingle, MTNA Executive Director and CEO, with the same question. He informed me that it is MTNA tradition to make no announcement until the MTNA Annual Business Meeting, which will take place this year on Tuesday, March 24 at 1:00 p.m. Naturally, I will respect this decision.
During the election process, I appreciated the chance to interact with so many of you through my blog. Let’s carry-on the dialogue, and continue our journey together into a bright musical future for all Americans. Your support means a lot.
Thanks for all each of you does for music, for children and for the future of music in the United States.
See you in Vegas!
