SCMTA Overview


We are the Salt Creek Music Teachers Association (SCMTA), a local chapter of the Illinois State Music Teachers Association (ISMTA) and the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA).

With nearly 40 music teaching professionals, membership in the SCMTA is open to all independent music teachers. The SCMTA promotes the highest standards for instruction, performance, and professionalism in the music community.


The object of the Salt Creek Music Teachers Association is to encourage an exchange of ideas in the field, enrich the love and understanding of music, and raise the standards of teaching music. We recognize that training, experience and challenge are all necessary for personal and professional growth.
