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 have an idea for a session that would be beneficial to your piano teacher colleagues, please let us know.  APTA has continuing education funds to help bring clinicians and workshops to our members.
