In June 1971, eight music teachers joined together to form an association through which their students would be given the opportunity to perform together in public recitals.
Today, this association is stronger than ever with more than 40 teachers working together in Milton and its surrounding cities to provide the highest quality of teaching, playing and singing, not only for the benefit of the student, but for the enjoyment of all who have the opportunity to listen!
