How MTAS Works

When you encounter a professional challenge as a music educator, your first step is to reach out to the Secretary of MTASA. Based on your query, you will be referred to the most suitable MTASA Council member who will then contact you to provide the necessary advice and support.

Service Cost

Affordable Advisory

While MTASA Council members offer their expertise free of charge to support their peers, the Music Teachers’ Advisory Service has an $80:00 hourly fee. This rate is comparable to a single lesson fee, and most issues are resolved within an hour. Please note, this service is not intended for specific instrumental expertise.

Reminderthis service is not designed to help with professional expertise in specific instrumental areas. We can’t help you locate cheap oboes or a reliable harp technician. It’s all about helping you in your private music teaching situation.
