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 an online 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.

Due to the cancellation of our 2020 conference because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have curated a series of webinars which are held on the fourth Friday of every month throughout the 2020-2021 teaching year, with the exception of December.  All webinars can be accessed in the members-only sign-in area of the website until August 31, 2021. 

Plans are underway for a virtual event in September 2021 to replace an in-person conference as well as a continuation of the webinars and coffee time chats which have been well received by our members.
