TopMusicCo announces a new professional development (PD) partnership with Queensland Music Teachers Association (QMTA), facilitating the professional development of member teachers between the two organisations.
As part of this collaboration, QMTA members will have access to a discounted TopMusicPro membership that will allow them to fulfil the continuing professional development (CPD) requirements of their professional membership.
QMTA, established in 1921, is a leading professional entity for instrumental music teachers in Queensland and host of annual piano and voice competitions. Along with VMTA, QMTA is now a regional partner with TopMusic, serving PD fulfilment opportunities for music teachers across Australia to further the music teaching profession.
TopMusic founder Tim Topham stated, “I’m really happy to be able to offer our courses, workshops and resources to the QMTA community while at the same time supporting the QMTA to continue their excellent work for hard-working Queensland music teachers. We’re proud to be able to partner with such a supportive organisation for teachers.”
Founded in 1921, The Queensland Music Teacher Association is a professional body for instrumental and voice music teachers. They are dedicated to promoting excellence in music teaching and developing a high standard of music teaching throughout the state of Queensland. Members benefit from a close association with similar organisations, examination bodies and tertiary institutions.
QMTA provides member opportunities for ongoing professional development through master classes, pre-diploma performances and showcase recitals. In addition, it sponsors major events such as annual piano and voice competitions, and the Alan Lane memorial professional development weekend.
