Welcome to the Suffolk Music Teachers Foundation
As of August 2023, the Suffolk Piano Teachers Foundation is now doing business as the Suffolk Music Teachers Foundation. We invite teachers in all instrument field including voice to connect and share their pedagogy and encourage students to perform.
We are a non-profit organization of professional music educators specializing in the area of classical music teaching. Our purpose is to involve teachers and their students in a musical community and assist teachers in attaining a higher quality of music education. SPTF was established in 1970 to provide a nucleus for discussion, information, and new developments in the area of piano and keyboard pedagogy. The group quickly expanded to include the presentation of workshops, trips, and outside speakers. We also provide performance opportunities for our students. These include a Formal Recital, Creative Showcase, a Themed Festival Recital, Chamber Concert, an annual Competition, and an Honors Recital. We provide assistance in preparing students for NYSSMA, the National Guild Auditions and RCM.
