Letter to My Students Parents

Standard

 

 

To: Piano Student Parents

From: Diana Lopez, B.M., M.M., Instructor of Piano

Date: Week of September 8, 2014

Dear Parents,

I am sending out this letter to inform you of some opportunities that are coming up with the Katy Music Teachers Association.

As a member of the National and Texas Music Teachers Associations, of which KMTA is a part, my students have the opportunity to participate as Student Affiliates. TMTA-SA provides an integrated curriculum including performance and composition competitions, ensemble participation, testing in music theory, development of skills in music composition, study of music history both through reading/testing and research, and a chance to provide community service. Students who participate in TMTA-SA activities earn points that contribute toward significant awards.

The local association in Katy provides many opportunities to prepare for state participation. I am encouraging all my students in grades K – 12 to participate in one of the local recitals (calendar is attached). Whether the students become Student Affiliates or not I will still be following the state’s curriculum. The Faber Piano Series, which the Conservatory supports, is one of the most recommended by music teachers in TMTA.

For more information please go to the TMTA website at www.tmta.org and click on the drop box for “students”. If your child is interested in participating the registration fee is $9.00. Make checks payable to: Diana Lopez. I will register the students personally. Deadline to register is 9/16/2014.

I look forward to having a majority of my students participate.

Musically Yours,

Diana Lopez
