The Tippecanoe Music Teachers Association is organizing a public arts piano event for the Greater Lafayette community during July 2014. “TMTA’s Pianos for the Street” will place pianos in public areas in Lafayette and West Lafayette on July 11 and leave them on site for the public’s enjoyment until July 28. We hope passersby will take the opportunity to sit down and play a favorite tune. Maybe a few people will find their “inner musician.” The goal of the project is to promote piano playing and live music making, and to give the opportunity to make music in a different way as a gift to the greater Lafayette area, which is so supportive of the arts.
The Tippecanoe Music Teachers Association, formerly known as the Tippecanoe Piano Teachers Network, was established in 1986 to support quality music education in the greater Lafayette area. All TMTA members also belong to the Music Teachers National Association and the Indiana Music Teachers Association. By coordinating the efforts of individual music teachers, TMTA is able to produce many exciting music activities which contribute to the cultural richness of our city and help build the creative, intellectual, social, and physical skills of our students.
