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.

 

As we wait out this present time of uncertainty, while at the same time try our best to bring the comfort and joy of music into our students’ lives, our Alberta Piano Teachers Organization wants you to know that we are closely monitoring directives from Alberta Health Services regarding measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

At present we have a Facebook discussion group in which teachers are discussing various teaching options for this challenging time. Please note that APTA’s mandate is not as a professional disciplining body but rather as a supportive educational body. As such we offer information and education opportunities to you, but do not mandate in any way how you run your studios

We are all looking forward to to being able to hold workshops, professional development gatherings, and public recitals once the threat of COVID-19 has been mitigated.  Thank you for your understanding.
