WSMTA State Conference 2017

Shoreline WA

June 22-24, 2017

The WSMTA Conference highlights the year for many of our members.  The annual assembly brings teachers from different parts of the state together for recitals, workshops, and master classes.  Sessions on pedagogy are given by a renowned guest Master Teacher, often including a formal recital.  The Honors Recitals feature students representing each chapter’s and district’s competition.  Many of our members present informative sessions on various aspects of teaching as well as occasional sessions on the business side of our work.  Various vendors bring displays of printed music and accompanying merchandise.   Our banquet is a special evening set aside to honor Honorary Life Members and Hall of Fame inductees. Even with all of the planned activities, there is time for good conversations with friends, time to meet new friends, and time to exchange ideas.  Conference rejuvenates us all for the year ahead.
