President’s Message

Greetings on behalf of the Broward County  Music Teachers Association and its 67 members across the county! BCMTA is the local chapter affiliate of the Florida State Music Teacher’s Association and the Music Teachers National Association.

Since its inception in 1965, BCMTA has continued to offer pedagogical workshops,  performance and composition competitions, music theory and ear training assessments, non-competitive performance festivals, and scholarship awards to motivate our members and their students. Our mission is to uphold the highest standards of teaching as we develop stimulating educational programs for our students.

A few of the benefits associated with BCMTA membership include:

  • professional certification options
  • teacher networking through our local association mentoring programs
  • access to our incomparable graded repertoire list and syllabus
  • access to our extensive resource library
  • optional insurance and legal support through MTNA
  • a subscription to two superior publications; the American Music Teacher published bi-monthly and the Florida Music Teacher published monthly.

One of the greatest benefits of all is the opportunity to share ideas and form life-long friendships with others who share your passion for teaching. Since 1965, BCMTA has become one of the largest and most active music teacher’s associations in Florida.

Enthusiastically yours,

Frann Castillo
BCMTA President
