Fall 2017 Workshop

After receiving limited feedback, a decision was made for our presenter.  An invitation was extended to Julie Knerr and she has agreed to be our guest speaker for the Fall Workshop 2017.  
January 2017 Teachers' Recital and Meeting

Our annual Teachers' Recital will take place on Sunday, January 22 (3:00 pm) at the First Christian Church in Jefferson City.  This recital will be followed by our January MMAMTA meeting.  Please consider performing either as a soloist or in collaboration with a colleague. It's a wonderful opportunity for our students to see us perform.

Please keep your selections to under 7 minutes in order to provide an opportunity for all who wish to perform.  The coordinator for this is Carline Waugh  (
