If you are interested in professional development, the Greater Evansville Music Teachers Association (GEMTA) is the place for you!

GEMTA has a full calendar of events planned for the 2017-2018 season, and you won’t want to miss any of them.  There are many educational and performance opportunities for both teachers and students.  Throughout the year we will host a piano contest, provide opportunities for local and state competition, and audition for camp and college scholarships.

Special for 2017 -- KEY Contest -- *new* teachers can enter up to 6 students in the KEY Contest on November 18, 2017 with no teacher membership fee.  Entries due by October 11.  Come try it out! 

We have a local-only membership option.  If you are only interested in local events, such as our meetings and the KEY contest, we are providing a lower-cost local membership.  With the GEMTA membership you will be able to enter students in the KEY contest without additional student fees.  You may also participate in the college & camp scholarship auditions, as an active GEMTA member.  Of course, there are wonderful benefits of being a full member of the local, state, and national organization -- Hoosier Auditions, state & national publications and conference opportunities, certifications and more!

GEMTA is affiliated with the Indiana Music Teachers Association (IMTA) and Music Teachers National Association (MTNA).  For more information, feel free to contact one of our local officers.
