Save the Date for Quad State Conference 2019!


Massachusetts Music Teachers Association President Ellyses Kuan and Conference Chairperson Alison Barr are excited to announce the Quad State Conference entitled “Collaboration, Motivation and Empowerment in the Music Studio,” to be held on Saturday, October 5, 2019, at Endicott College’s Manninen Center for the Arts in Beverly, Massachusetts.

After looking at the link below and photos at the bottom of this announcement, you’ll see that this will truly be a “destination” conference!


We encourage you to plan for an extra day before or after the conference, to explore the seacoast city of Beverly and historic Salem, just minutes away!

Held in partnership with Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont’s Music Teachers Associations, the conference will feature renowned inspirational speaker, pianist William Westney.  Dr. Westney is an internationally noted educator and holds two endowed positions at Texas Tech University – Paul Whitfield Horn Professor of Piano and Eva Browning Artist-in-Residence.  He won a grant from the U.S. State Department's Fulbright "Senior Specialist" program (Council for International Exchange of Scholars,) to teach throughout Korea and China in 2006.
