In September 2017, the Madison Area Piano Teachers Associated (MAPTA) membership voted to become a local association of WMTA beginning with the 2018-19 fiscal year. The local association application for Madison Area Music Educators (MAME) has been approved by WMTA and MTNA as of December 2017.

MAPTA will officially convert to MAME at the end of May 2018. Until then, MAME and MAPTA will co-exist. In February 2018, we conducted our first meeting and voted on the slate of officers presented for the inaugural year of our new local association.

Our 2018-19 Executive Board:

President – Linda Johnson
Vice-President – Denise Taylor
Secretary – Ben Garber
Treasurer – Daniel Kuzuhara
Immediate Past President – Mickey Lytle

Spring 2018 President’s Message:

“Time marches on” and seasons change. As MAPTA becomes MAME, we’re taking all of the great parts of our 50-year-old organization and adding them to a host of benefits we’ll be able to take advantage of with the supportive umbrella of MTNA and WMTA above us. We had a most inspiring meeting last month. Even in the aftermath of an overnight snowstorm, we had a record turnout of 18 members at our February meeting. We were delighted to hear presentations from our two scholarship members followed by a roundtable discussion about the similarities and differences between MAPTA and MAME. There was energy and optimism throughout the room that was contagious and enthusiastic. We met for two hours, yet no one seemed eager to leave the gathering of our colleagues and friends.

What we all took away from that meeting is truly what our organization is about, no matter what acronym we use to name ourselves. Our MAPTA history is an important and essential part of our organization, and we look to the future with anticipation and excitement for our profession!
