We are the San Diego North Chapter of the California Association of Professional Music Teachers (CAPMT) which is the only state music teachers association in the state of California that is affiliated with a national organization. The Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) was founded in 1876 and is the oldest professional music teachers organization in the United States. Our membership includes independent music teachers, college faculty members, students, and concert artists of every instrument and voice.
Our goals include:
- To support and advance professional music teaching within our chapter’s region
which is the northern part of San Diego and Imperial Counties of California.
- To increase professionalism among music teachers through regular meetings,
educational presentations, and workshops.
- To provide positive educational experiences for music students through
quality instruction, performance opportunities, and local, state, and national

work of students of all ages, cultures, and musical disciplines.
