Welcome to the Northern San Diego Music Teachers Association Website.  We hope your visit with us has been a pleasant one and you’ve found all the information you need.

Due to the current pandemic and under guidelines from the CDC and the State of California, no festivals or teacher meetings will take place in person until at least 2021. Please see our Calendar or individual event pages for details and updates. Our Board of Directors remains available to our members for any help or guidance we can provide.

Most of our teachers are continuing to teach lessons via video calling apps such as Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, and WhatsApp. If you are looking for a new teacher at this time, please use our Find a Teacher page.

Congratulations to the 29 2020 Certificate of Merit Seniors who received their Senior Medallions. We wish them all the best in college and beyond!

Also, congratulations to the 34 2020 Certificate of Merit students who received 100% on their Theory Test.
