The hub for music education resources and valuable content.
Did You Know?
Recital and competition season is just around the corner. Are you covered? Whether you are a local association getting ready for a competition at a nearby university or an independent music teacher getting ready for your spring recital at a local church, you need to be covered by general liability insurance. MTNA offers a blanket policy for local and state-sponsored events. The process is simple—all you have to do is visit the MTNA website at http://www.mtna.org/Programs/GeneralLiabilityInsurance/tabid/248/Default.aspx, click the right-hand submission form link, complete and submit the form.
If you are an independent music teacher hosting your student recital outside of your home, be sure to check with the venue to find out if you need your own general liability insurance. This coverage can be purchased through MTNA's insurance partner, TIE and is accessed by going to through Forest T. Jones Insurance Company, www.ftj.com. If you already have general liability insurance for your studio, then a quick phone call to your agent, transferring temporary coverage to the new venue, is all that is needed.
ASCAP fees for state and local events are covered by MTNA. Be sure to send your event programs to Jenny Thomason at the National Headquarters in May and June, so MTNA is able to keep track of state and local events. For independent music teacher recitals, ASCAP fee is not required and no paperwork is needed.
That just about covers all of your recital and event needs, except for one more thing—Program Covers! MTNA has recital program covers available for sale in four designs at the MTNA Marketplace,
