For Students

Fostering Growth as a Musician

  • The Seattle Music Teachers Association (SMTA) would not be the reputable organization it is without our students. As a local chapter of the Music Teachers National Association, students can broaden their musical horizons by studying with one of our teachers. Opportunities for furthering students’ musical studies are available nationally, state-wide, and locally, through Music Teachers National Association, Washington State Music Teachers Association, and Seattle Music Teachers Association.

    Whether you are a parent looking to enroll your child into beginning music classes, or an adult who would like to learn a new musical skill, the SMTA is here to provide learning, growth, and continuing musical educational opportunities for music students in the Seattle and greater Seattle area.

    SMTA also offers the opportunity to sell or give away instruments to other members or the community at large. Click to post your free online listing in our Community Classifieds section.


  • One of the benefits of SMTA for musical students is the large repertoire of qualified private music teachers and instructors who are part of our organization. Let us help you Find a Teacher in the Seattle area to suit your musical needs.
