About Student Workshops and Concerts
Multi-day workshop events for students and the community are occasionally programmed by KMTA. In 2017, KMTA hosted film composer and arranger Grant Fonda to visit from Southern California and share his experiences and inspiration with our members and their students. The resulting weekend took months of preparation, but the result was a workshop and Monster Concert attended by scores of students and their families. Association music teachers volunteered their time to select music, organize rehearsals, arrange for multiple grand pianos at the concert venue, and host Grant during his visit. Events like this are a great example of the collaboration and creativity that teachers can exercise as members of KMTA.
