Chicago Area Music Teachers Association (CAMTA) is affiliated with the Illinois State Music Teachers Association (ISMTA) and the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), the nation's oldest professional music organization. Teachers who wish to join the local association also become members of the state and national associations. Members of MTNA are entitled to many membership services, including a subscription to the award-winning magazine, American Music Teacher, insurance programs, professional publications, and workshops at the state and national level.
Active membership is available to any individual professionally engaged in a music activity. If you are interested in the opportunities available through CAMTA and are concerned about the welfare of music and music education in our society, you are invited to join. It is not necessary to have a music degree or be affiliated with a music school. Discounted MTNA memberships apply to full-time college students and seniors. To join, please visit mtna.org. If you have any questions about local membership, please contact the CAMTA Membership Chair.
