Since receiving our charter in 1960, the San Fernando West Valley Branch (SFWV) has shown a steady growth in membership as well as activities. The monthly meetings provide opportunities for discussion and exchanges of ideas pertaining to the private music teacher. Guest speakers and artists offer further stimulation and encourage a broadening of creative capacities.
The SFWV branch serves teachers from North Hollywood to Thousand Oaks and Simi Valley. As of September 2011 we are 86 members strong. Our membership includes teachers with private studios, educators at public and private schools, and college professors offering instruction in the disciplines of piano, organ, flute, clarinet, violin and cello.
Students have many opportunities to perform and compete. Branch programs include the state Certificate of Merit Program, Branch Honors Recital, General Recitals, the Southern California Junior Bach Festival, Contemporary Festival, VOCE, Concerto Competition, and the Memorial Awards Competition.
The mission of the Music Teachers’ Association of California is to promote excellence in the music teaching profession. We do this through high membership standards, strong ethical values, and continuing professional education.
THE MUSIC TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION OF CALIFORNIA is a corporation founded in 1897 under the laws of the State of California. Its purposes are to promote musical culture for both the student and teacher, to maintain high standards of music teaching, and to advance the interests and welfare of music teachers as well as to encourage cooperation and good fellowship among members. The exacting requirements for membership in the association establish the members as qualified teachers of professional status in the community. The Code of Ethics maintains a high standard of personal and professional conduct. Currently, there are 61 branches and approximately 4500 members statewide.
