What We Do

We invite experienced teachers, composers, examiners, and other experts in their fields to speak to us in a small, informal group setting about a given topic.

We have organized activities for our students such as recitals and master classes.

We aim to learn about the many facets of teaching music through interactive sessions, whether its a dynamic presentation, a group discussion, or a visit to one of the many professionals or institutions in our community. Please take a look at our Calendar of Events page which includes all events since 2005.

Music Students of All Disciplines ...

To help us become a well-rounded musical organization, we strongly encourage music students of all disciplines (piano, voice, wind, strings, and brass) to join our group! 

What Members Say About STA ...

“Its been great for networking and learning and its such a friendly group!”

"The STA has been a great resource and community for me. Our members are mature, smart and hard-working yet our get-togethers are casual, friendly, and instructive. I get to learn about a whole host of matters ranging from musical injury prevention seminars to music school tours to student master classes. It's very interdisciplinary. I feel that I get to not only learn about music pedagogy, but also about the classical music world, private and public music institutions (ie. Schools, CBC radio station, methodology workshops, body and physical/mental health issues, etc), and the challenges of working with children. I enjoy that it feels like a cooperative, with one member taking on organizing one event each month, with lots of direct input and cooperation from the other members as well as excellent guidance from our teacher leader Dr. Dodek. I thoroughly enjoy being a member of this group and feel privileged to have discovered it and participated in it." TML, STA member 2011-2013
