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.
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.
New Membership Year
July 1, 2018
Membership in the Alberta Piano Teachers’ Association is a very reasonable $45 per year. If you forgot to renew last month, your name disappeared from both our public “Find a Teacher” and login-accessible online directories. Fear not! You can rectify this by renewing online.
Scholarship Application Deadline
July 16, 2018
Are money issues keeping you from registering for our 25th annual conference in September? You may qualify for a full-conference registration plus hotel stay. Have you been busy with professional development activities this past year? APTA recognizes high achievement on theory exams and in piano performance. Are you new to the teaching profession and want to build a library of teaching resources? We also have money set aside to help with tuition, transportation and/or lodging for furthering your education as a piano teacher. But you need to act fast! The deadline to apply for our four adjudicated and four mark-based scholarships is Monday, July 16.
