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.

2022 Annual Conference

We’re Back! 2022 Conference Your Way
September 23 & 24, 2022
Crossroads Church
Red Deer AB

We are pleased to have Adam Johnson as our headliner for our first-ever hybrid conference allowing you to join us in-person or watch a live-streamed version from home.  The last time we were together was in 2019, so this is a much-anticipated “family reunion” of piano teacher friends and colleagues.  APTA members will remember Dr. Johnson from two of our most highly-rated webinars which are available in the members-only sign in section of the website.  He will be joined by other session clinicians to provide a conference you won’t want to miss.  The complete schedule, session topics, and background of clinicians and concert artist can be found on our conference information page.
