Dear MMAMTA members,

Happy Fourth of July! Hope you are enjoying a good summer.

*MTNA membership is now due.* If you have not renewed already, please do this immediately. To renew, log into your account: https://www.mtna.org/MTNA/Sign_In.aspx . If you are new, sign-up here: https://www.mtna.org/MTNA/JoinAndRenew/Membership/Active_Membership.aspx

A new handbook is now being compiled, and any membership not renewed one or before July 31 will not be guaranteed to make the members' list . (It will be updated once in January 2020.)
RSVP by Aug 11 for MMAMTA Potluck Party at Dr. Peter Miyamoto and Ayako Tsuruta's home, August 16 (Fri) at 12pm. We will review the year's calendar, and it's also a great way to reconnect, recruit and introduce interested music teachers to our organization in a friendly setting. Bring your musical friends; hope you can join us!

*Save the Dates*
  1. MMAMTA Teachers Recital is January 26, 2020, Sunday at 3pm - venue TBA. MMAMTA Winter Meeting following the concert. Please RSVP Ayako (me) with your repertoire, its length and personnel; we will try to keep the event under 1 hour, and scheduled on first come basis.
  2. MMAMTA Musicathon is scheduled for Feb 22 in Jefferson City (snow date Mar 8), and March 7 & 8 at Jerry's in Columbia. It's perfect occasion to run-through Federation pieces or just to go in and have fun playing in a different but low-key atmosphere. There are two great pianos - come play your chamber music or two-piano ensembles!

Wishing you a restful summer,

Ayako Tsuruta
