The recommendation to not solicit students from other teachers is merely that-a recommendation for common courtesy between practitioners of a profession devoted to the furtherance of the love and appreciation of music via competence on an instrument. If students become professionals, so be it. There are already ample opportunities to showcase exceptional talents whose teachers can be readily ascertained by those interested in pursuing this very exclusive and highly competitive path. While one hopes for and encourages ethical behavior from MTNA members, there has been no effort to enforce such conduct nor does there seem to be any such need. There is no cause for interference by any outside body. Helen Murray
