In 1932 a group of private music teachers came together to form the BC Registered Music Teachers’ Association (BCRMTA).
A national organization the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers (CFMT) was founded in 1935 in Vancouver BC.
In 1985 a group of ten private teachers wanted to promote continued learning and quality private music lessons so the Coquitlam-Maple Ridge branch was formed.
One of the twenty-one branches in BC we have grown to approximately 70 members with a wide variety of music instruction.
For all levels of membership a high level of training is required. Teachers must have completed a recognized program.
- To promote and support high standards of private music education.

- To provide leadership in music education.
The Coquitlam-Maple Ridge provides professionals with a high level of training offering a wide variety of quality music instruction.
