Northwest Division.

The 2006 Northwest Division MTNA Competitions were held at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon, January 13-15. Presidents from each state in the division attended a meeting and provided service throughout the competition. These competitions require many volunteers from local associations, and the efforts of these people, together with the division competition chair, coordinators and state presidents, are greatly appreciated.

Oregon MTA will hold its 2006 conference again this year in conjunction with Piano Festival Northwest. Marvin Blickenstaff, NCTM, noted teacher, lecturer and performer will be the guest clinician. July 12-13 are the scheduled dates for the conference. Washington State MTA will present its 2006 state conference June 26-30 at the Ocean Shores Convention Center on the Washington coast. Paul Barnes will be the guest clinician along with Gayle Kowalchyk, sponsored by Alfred Music Publishing.

The upcoming 2006 MTNA National Conference in Austin, Texas, March 25-29, promises stimulating educational sessions in music literature, performance, pedagogy and technology; exciting concerts; master classes and the national finals of the MTNA Student Performance Competitions. Attending this conference will be a wonderful opportunity to expand any teacher's performing and teaching awareness.
