Welcome to our Whittier Branch

The MUSIC TEACHERS’ ASSOCIATION OF CALIFORNIA (MTAC) is an organization founded and incorporated in 1897 to promote the welfare of the music teachers of the state, and to elevate the Educational and Teaching standards of its members. The exacting qualifications for membership in the Association establish the member as a qualified accredited teacher in the community. You can learn more about MTAC in the state of California at our state website. You are invited to JOIN US.

The WHITTIER BRANCH was chartered in 1955 with twenty-two active members. There are now 64 members of the Whittier Branch, including Instrumental and Vocal teachers, College Instructors, Composers, and Public School Music Teachers. The first President was Carroll Clevenger and our current President is Robin Curtis. Our meeting schedule for 2017-2018 is mostly complete. For more info go to our Events page.
