As a member of the MTNA I find this inquiry into "proposed consent decree" surprising. It is a very open organization. A person looking for a private teacher may easily call any teacher by using a booklet containing the names of all the MTNA members in the area. The booklet is free and available at music stores. They may call any person listed to inquire about the experience, the philosophy, the materials of instruction used, the location of the teacher and the fees charged by the teacher. People frequently do this , especially if they are new to the area. Almost all people go to a teacher who has been recommended by a friend or a neighbor in our area. Thank you.
