Welcome to the Victorian Music Teachers' Association

VMTA is the peak advocacy body and voice of the instrumental music teaching profession in Victoria, and a central resource for members of the general public who are looking for a qualified music teacher.

Our purpose is to bring together persons associated with the music teaching profession, and to support, facilitate and promote high standards of teaching in Victoria. We encourage music teachers to improve the quality of their teaching while at the same time providing students with access to quality teachers and performance opportunities. More broadly, our mission is to foster an appreciation of music in the community.

Instrumental music teachers benefit from a wide range of services including professional development, advocacy and advice. Our recommended teaching rates are used as a benchmark by teachers, employers and the wider community. We are the place people go to look for a great teacher and to receive advice about music and music education in general.

Quality Teaching
By Quality Teachers
We provide access to qualified and experienced music teachers who have met rigorous criteria in order to become members of our association. We also offer independent advice to the general public on how to find a music teacher, and on matters relating to music and music education. Our fully accredited members have achieved formal qualifications in music and have taught for a minimum of 3 years. All VMTA members have reached a high standard in the instrument they teach, and their credentials, including references, are checked prior to their membership being approved.
