HARTFORD MUSIC TEACHERS ALLIANCE

Where Students Come First

Message from the President


Welcome to another year of wonderful music making! We are excited to begin this season with much to offer our members.

Our Fall Festival is going to kick things off with an adjudicated, non competitive event. This is a great opportunity for students who have worked hard during the summer and would like to get some feedback on their pieces. It is also early enough for those instrumentalists who are planning on participating in the Regional Auditions.

We are offering three student recitals during the year, as well as the Spring Festival. For piano students wanting to compete we offer two different levels of competition in the Rising Pianists Competition and the Virtuoso Competition.

Our informal pedagogy coffee hours offer professional camaraderie, a time to discuss many musical topics, and an opportunity to address issues we may encounter in our teaching. We are also planning lectures and other member events for this year.

Our last event of the year is the Concerto Competition, open to all high school instrumentalists. The winner of this competition will be featured as a soloist with the Farmington Valley Symphony Orchestra. As always check our website for latest updates!

I would like to extend a special warm welcome to our new members. Please let me, or any of our board members, know of any questions you might have.

Looking forward to seeing all of you at our many events this year!

Sincerely,

Sima Brodsky
