The mission of the Kentucky Music Teachers Association is to advance the value of music study, music making, and music appreciation and enjoyment to
Kentuckians and to support the professionalism of Kentucky music teachers.


The Kentucky MTA believes music study is integral to the education, development, and enhancement of each Kentuckian, and the rich cultural
history of the Commonwealth is ideal for the promotion of individual, collective, and diverse artistic expression.

To lead our state in this vision, Kentucky MTA will:
1) improve the level of professionalism within the field of applied music teaching
2) help the public readily identify competent music teachers in their communities
3) support programs to financially assist music teachers and students with their educational pursuits
4) advocate for the support of music and music education
5) foster programs that provide diverse high quality musical experiences
6) support local associations and student chapters by providing incentive funding programs and grant information
