The Ontario Registered Music Teachers' Association (ORMTA) was founded in 1885, re-established in 1936, incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 1946, and received charitable status in 2009. We are a provincial organization managed by a volunteer council and comprised of more than 1300 Registered Music Teachers and related members across Ontario.
The aim of the ORMTA is to encourage and provide the highest calibre of music education possible and to promote exceptional standards of music in each community.
The ORMTA organizes and presents a wide range of programs on behalf of its members and their students, both on a local and provincial level. This includes performance competitions, an annual music writing competition, Canada Music Week celebrations, awards to recognize outstanding teaching, conventions, recitals, professional development, and more.
