The Illinois State Music Teachers Association is affiliated with the Music Teachers National Association. Our mission is to advance the value of music study and music making to society and to support the professional development of music teachers in the state of Illinois.


If you are interested in the opportunities available through ISMTA/MTNA membership and are concerned about the welfare of music in society, you are invited to join. It is not necessary to have a music degree or be affiliated with a music school.
