About SMTA

  • Seattle Music Teachers Association (SMTA) was established in 1947 and is a chapter of Washington State Music Teachers Association and the Music Teachers National Association. Comprised of musicians with many educational interests and varying backgrounds, our current membership of over 150 teachers located in Seattle welcomes all who are eager to grow musically and expand their horizons as music teachers.

    Teachers within our organization specialize in all types of musical training – from voice to piano, woodwinds to brass. SMTA teachers also teach students with ranging levels of skill and expertise, allowing students to find the private instructor right for them. SMTA provides additional opportunities for both member teachers and students to participate in local, state, and national festivals and competitions, which would not be available without the collaboration and support of the Seattle Music Teachers Association.
