College Faculty Forum

Collegiate teachers, please consider these opportunities, for your students and for theirs!  The evaluations and auditions are proven springboards for success for students now in DMA programs around the country, and excellent stages for opportunities at the national level, while providing even hobbyists avenues for being encouraged to play with excellence!   

A personal and professional opportunity for you would be as a presenter at one of the KMTA or MTNA conferences. State conferences feature Kansas performers or presenters, and in 2017 two Kansas professors are presenting at the National Conference.

As you watch for KMTA conference news, look for the College Faculty Forum on the schedule, and bring your concerns to the discussion table!

I am not a collegiate faculty member, but have been privileged to work with so many of our wonderful Kansas professors!  I would love to see participation increased in this area—we have such innovative work being done at our colleges and universities, and every member of our Association will benefit and grow from your participation!
