Why join?  Become a Part of CAPMT

California Association of Professional Music Teachers (CAPMT) is a vibrant network of professional and progressive music teachers.  We are fully committed to promoting the arts through our various programs -- both for student and teacher development.  Through this organization, we strive to connect individual studio teachers with school teachers and University faculty to create a strong community.


Our Chapter is Santa Clara Valley, consisting of the South Bay area, which is part of District 2 (San Francisco Bay Area).   When you join the Music Teachers' National Association, you can register to become a member of District 2 of California Association of Professional Music Teachers and a member of the local Santa Clara Valley Chapter.
