If you have any experience working with websites or if you are interested in being the liaison between our branch teachers and the web administrator please reach out immediately (This email address is being protected from spambots.

MTAC has an overall licensing agreement with ASCAP which assures that ASCAP member composers and arrangers will receive royalties from the music which MTAC students and members perform. But in order for ASCAP to know what is performed, they must have programs. There is no charge to the Branches for this service, except for your mailing cost. The State will take care of mailing all programs directly to ASCAP. Should you have any questions about ASCAP, you may access their website at http://www.ascap.com.

Please edit the changes in your teacher information at MTAC.org, and send them to Irina Behrendt, our Branch Membership Secretary at: This email address is being protected from spambots.
