Submitted by david on Wed, 02/05/2020 - 11:13

Happy 2020 to colleagues and friends! I am so honored to serve as your KMTA President for the next two years. If there’s ever anything I can do to help you, I hope that you will not hesitate to contact me. KMTA is dedicated to your success and development as a musician and educator! 

Looking to the horizon for upcoming events in our organization, please consider attending the 2020 MTNA National Conference held in Chicago March 21-25. There are numerous sessions on the use of technology in lessons, working with special learners, helping middle schoolers thrive, and much, much more! There will also be special performances by the winner of the National Chopin Piano Competition, as well as international pianist Anton Nel. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to have fun  – and learn in the process – with your colleagues and friends!

We were so inspired by the presenters at the 2019 State Conference held at Tabor College in September, and many of us left ready for more! Well, thankfully, we now have details for the next State Conference! The 2020 KMTA State Conference will be held September 25-26 at Manhattan Christian College (Manhattan, KS). Guest artist and conference presenter details are forthcoming, but it promises to be a phenomenal event, so please mark your calendars and watch for further updates!
