The Music Teachers National Association
The Reinhardt University Collegiate Chapter of Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) is a group of students interested in private teaching, performing, and networking with other students across the nation. The Reinhardt chapter also provides an important opportunity for students to contribute to the future success of the music profession by joining with over 24,000 music teachers and collegiate members nationwide and by providing meaningful musical experiences and education for the college community and community at large.
The Reinhardt chapter of MTNA was organized in 1994. Activities include monthly meetings, service to the community, such as performing at nursing homes, attendance at art events off-campus, fund-raising activities, and the annual trip to the Georgia Music Teachers Association State Conference, which members can attend free of charge.
The National Association for Music Education
Music allows us to celebrate and preserve our cultural heritages, and also to explore the realms of expression, imagination, and creation resulting in new knowledge. Therefore, every individual should be guaranteed the opportunity to learn music and to share in musical experiences. The National Association for Music Education is to advance music education by encouraging the study and making of music by all.
For more information about joining Reinhardt's chapter of the National Association for Music Education, contact Dr. Melissa Arasi.
Pi Kappa Lambda
The Society of Pi Kappa Lambda is the only Reinhardt University honor society in music, and is so recognized by its membership in the Association of College Honor Societies. Since its establishment more than eighty years ago, Pi Kappa Lambda has consistently adhered to the principles of its founders in honoring scholarship, musicianship, and personal character. Chapters of the Society annually extend invitations to membership in Pi Kappa Lambda to the highest ranking students from junior, senior, and graduate classes. The elections are the responsibility, as well as the privilege, of a Faculty Committee representing all of the active members of the Chapter.
