Who We Are

 Aurora Music Teachers Association is a professional non-profit organization of independent music teachers serving Aurora, Colorado and its surrounding areas since 1977.

AMTA’s members offer music education for many instruments including piano, voice, strings, woodwinds, brass and guitar, along with music composition, theory, and performance. We promote the musical growth of students and teachers alike, through education, performance and service.

AMTA was selected as the Colorado State Music Teachers Association of the year in 1996 and awarded the “Arts for a Better Tomorrow “ award from the Aurora Symphony Orchestra in 2011.
