How to Join
The Ann Arbor Area Piano Teachers Guild is a local chapter of the Michigan Music Teachers Association, our state’s affiliate for the Music Teachers National Association. You must either be or become a member to MTNA and MMTA to join AAAPTG.
Full membership into the Guild is open to piano teachers with both teaching experience and a college degree in music (or its equivalent). This should include either a major or minor in applied piano. Equivalent education and experiences may be accepted with approval by the Executive Board.
To join, interested teachers are asked to complete two steps: 1) payment of annual dues to MTNA, MMTA, and AAAPTG. 2) Submission of an application to AAAPTG so that your teaching background can be reviewed. In the event that you are turned down for membership into AAAPTG, that portion of your dues ($40.00) will be returned to you.
1) Annual Dues for 2020-21: Membership dues for AAAPTG are $45.00/year ($30.00/yr for 65+), not including the dues for MTNA/MMTA. Currently, MTNA dues are $83.00/year and MMTA dues are $40.00/year. Payment to the National, State and Ann Arbor organizations should be made via MTNA’s website (you can pay for all three at the same time).
2) Anyone wishing to join AAAPTG must complete the application form found by clicking this link. If you prefer to submit your application by post, you may download and print a copy from here. Please mail application form to:
