We are excited for the 2023 KMTA Conference, which will take place at Washburn University this fall! It will be a feast for the senses, showcasing the best in music pedagogy and performance. You will meet acclaimed music educators, performers, and entrepreneurs throughout Kansas and neighboring states. Attendees will experience a variety of performances, presentations, poster sessions, masterclasses, exhibits, and networking opportunities. College students and collegiate chapters are highly encouraged to join and even submit a proposal for presentation. In addition to the above, conference registrations include a Friday dinner banquet and a Saturday luncheon where you can relax, learn the latest KMTA news, meet new faces, and reunite with old friends and colleagues. 

KMTA is proud to feature Dr. David Korevaar as the 2023 KMTA Conference guest artist. Dr. Korevaar is Professor of Piano at the University of Colorado Boulder where he holds the titles of Distinguished Professor and Helen and Peter Weil Faculty Fellow. In addition to his conference keynote session on Friday afternoon, he will perform a recital of piano works on Friday evening. On Saturday morning, select students will perform for him in a piano masterclass. More information on how to apply for the masterclass will be available to KMTA members soon.
