MTNA versus NCMTA – What’s the Difference?

NCMTA is an affiliate of MTNA. In other words, MTNA is the parent organization of NCMTA. To join NCMTA, you must join MTNA and choose your state affiliation – two memberships, two fees, one registration!

Student Events with MTNA

Our national parent association, MTNA (Music Teachers National Association), offers students performance adjudication opportunities. Both competitive and non-competitive, these opportunities are distinct from our own NCMTA student events.
