As a private music teacher I find the FTC challenge to the MTNA code of ethics to be absolutely ridiculous. Clearly, the FTC does not understand the nature of the profession. To maintain a climate of respect and collegiality, professionals should not actively recruit the clients of fellows professionals, and professional organizations SHOULD discourage their members from doing so. Clients are still completely free to seek other professionals.
