Welcome!

This website is designed to help piano teachers interested in developing a network of colleagues and accessing professional development opportunities as well as for parents looking to enroll their children in piano lessons.  We encourage existing members of APTA to log into the members-only area where we have posted electronic versions of our newsletter and a detailed, searchable database.  Should you be unable to find what you’re looking for, please contact us.  We’d be glad to help.

Upcoming Events

If you are hosting an event in your community which would be beneficial to your piano teacher colleagues, please let us know.  Remember that APTA has continuing education funds to help bring clinicians and workshops to our members.

Calgary Potluck Supper

Saturday, April 28
Location:  TBA

If you are feeling somewhat isolated in your teaching and want the chance to meet other teachers in an informal setting, this might be the event for you.  Person-to-person contact is essential in an age when many of our connections are made online.  Calgary APTA Extended Executive members Regina 403.375.0035 and Charlotte 403.271.2373 are hoping to hear from APTA members (and non-members!) to see if there is interest in a supper gathering at the end of April.
