About Us

OMTA Portland is a subdivision of the Oregon Music Teachers Association — the state’s largest organization of professional music teachers who are dedicated to excellence in music education. OMTA Portland serves the music students of Portland and its surrounding suburbs, including Beaverton, Bethany, Hillsboro, Gresham, Lake Oswego and West Linn. OMTA Portland is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

When you study with an OMTA teacher, you train with a qualified, competent music mentor. OMTA teachers are constantly attending music workshops and conferences, keeping up with the latest trends, theories and techniques in instruction and performance. We proudly provide our students with access to a wide variety of performance opportunities and educational programs, including music festivals, competitions, student shows, scholarships, master classes, and the renowned Syllabus Evaluation program. Our teachers and students are constantly gracing local stages as musicians in many of the community’s finest musical ensembles, including the Portland Youth Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Youth Symphony, the Columbia Symphony, and the Oregon Symphony.
