MATC Convention 2022 Los Angeles July 2022


This year Serena attended the MTAC Convention in Los Angeles, which is an annual State Convention brings together world-class artists, music educators and students to celebrate music performance and composition. The convention offers an exciting opportunity to engage with music students, parents and teachers.

Music Teachers’ Association of California (MTAC), founded in 1897, is a statewide organization of professional music teachers with many local branches. The mission of MTAC is to pursue excellence in music education and advance the music teaching profession through innovative programs that foster artistic growth and achievement.

The state MTAC annually sponsors diverse educational programs such as Certificate of Merit® (CM), Piano Concerto Solo Competition, Young Composers Guild, Improvisation, and Young Artist Guild. Every MTAC teacher with an active membership can participate in these programs by entering their students in local, regional or state-level events. These events will give students opportunities to perform in public, develop musicianship through a conservatory-style curriculum, receive formal performance evaluations, or compete against peers for artistic excellence.

Today, with over 4,700 members, there are more than 64 self-governing, affiliated MTAC Branches throughout the state.
