The FTC's pursuit of MTNA has been completely ridiculous and unjustified. We do not 'price fix' and there is huge regional variation in rates that are charged for teaching. Students are completely free to study with the teacher of their choice. As MTNA members we maintain professional relationships with our colleagues. As professional music teachers we cannot be labeled in one category. Each teacher is unique and teaches as they know best. Your action against MTNA has wasted countless hours and money of this wonderful non-profit organization that could have been better spent doing what they do best: providing support and benefits to their teacher members and affiliates, so that we may all better serve our students; the musicians of tomorrow.
