The MRMTA Mission Statement

"We are a municipal organization that provides leadership in music education across Manitoba. We promote and support high standards of education among our members."

"Manitoba Registered Music Teachers’ Association (MRMTA) is an organization committed to ensuring the highest calibre of music education possible and to promote high standards of music in each community."

"To be a member of the Association, one must hold a degree or diploma from a recognized university or conservatory or meet the necessary qualifications set down by the MRMTA, thus ensuring a high level of training and a commitment to professionalism."

"The Registered Music Teachers’ Association is a Canada-wide federation of private music teachers encompassing ten provinces and the Yukon Territory, with over 3,200 members. A Registered Music Teacher is a member of the provincial association, which is affiliated with the national association (Canadian Federation of Music Teachers’ Association, CFMTA)."

Teacher and Studio Policy

  • MRMTA members are independent teachers and studio owners. They set their own policies in order to provide high quality music education, ensure personal safety, and follow public health guidelines and recommendations.
  • The Association understands the many unique challenges facing its members during the course of the pandemic.
  • MRMTA members are strongly encouraged to stay informed about local and regional allowances when establishing protocols and appropriate business procedures for their studio.
