From the President
Welcome to MAME’s second official year! Whether you are new to MAME or were a member of our former organization MAPTA for many years, I know you will find this year is chock-full of opportunities to enrich your teaching. Our Directory lays out the entire year with as much detail as possible. Please get your calendars ready for marking! However, I should point out that a few loose ends still need to be finalized in the coming months. For that reason, be sure to read our monthly electronic newsletter “Nuances” which should arrive on the first of each month from September through May. (The first one of the year arrives just before September 1 to help you plan better.) Our website and facebook page are also great resources for our activities.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t remind you that our programs and general meetings are an excellent opportunity to meet other members, not to mention that they’re interesting! New this year… masterclasses for all ages and levels have been combined with general meetings. And don’t forget to sign your students up for the many student events MAME sponsors – the Performers Play Together, Young Artist Recitals, Honors Festival, and even Adult Music Socials.
Finally, please remember that MAME is an all-volunteer organization. We have a dedicated board that works hard to keep us running smoothly. We welcome any members—new or returning—to get involved with the board, just shoot me an email if you’re interested. Thank you to our board for all of your efforts!
