As anyone who’s been to a national conference will tell you, one of the highlights of the experience is the extensive Exhibitor Hall!
MTNA prints a coupon book that contains special offers from many of the exhibitors. This is a great way to pick up catalogs, teaching goodies, and lots of free books and sheet music!
You see all sorts of great things, including a craftsman at work on a beautiful grand piano from Steinway & Sons.
And of course, you have a chance to meet the publishers, listen to composers play their own compositions, collect autographs, and visit with other teachers. The only drawback is that there’s never enough time to do everything and still make it to all the sessions!
