Welcome to the West Suburban Music Teachers Association (WSMTA).  We are an organization of professional music educators who can bring the joy of music making to every home and student.

We are committed to the following goals:

  • To encourage the exchange of ideas in the field;
  • To enrich the love & understanding of music;
  • To raise the standards of teaching music through continued professional growth.

Membership in WSMTA is open to all music teachers.

Our members include teachers of piano, voice, organ, guitar, strings and woodwinds in the Chicago suburbs including western Cook, Dupage and Kane counties.

WSMTA meetings are generally held on the first Thursday of each month from September to May.  The purpose of these meetings is to share information on new developments in music and teaching and enhance professional growth.
