“There should be no segregation”

With this first motion back in 1952, the newly founded Kentucky Music Teachers Association started its rich and fruitful history.

With the goal of advancing the value of music teaching, music making, and appreciation, KMTA believes that music is integral to the education and development of each Kentuckian. Since our foundation, on October 12, 1952 our organization has continuously served the music teachers and students of our state. Please take a look at some of our rich history below:
