Ideas From Various Associations

  • Have a report or an IMTF “minute” at every meeting, which calls attention to maintaining a professional image, some include book reviews with various topics pertaining to our profession.
  • Provide one program for your association that relates to the business or professional demeanor of independent teachers.
  • Conduct surveys among the members regarding policies so that everyone will have an idea about what other independent teachers are doing.
  • Conduct anonymous surveys on fees charged for lessons, playing for parties and weddings, and other musical services.
  • Call attention to the IMTF articles in the AMT magazine.
