Musical Theatre Educators' Alliance

Established in the United States in 1999, we're proud of our history in strengthening musical theatre training all around the world.

About MTEA

Musical Theatre Educators’ Alliance was founded in 1999 as a means for teachers of young professional artists to come together and exchange ideas, methodologies, and solutions to common challenges in the academic settings of universities and conservatories. The organization has grown to include member institutions spanning the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Membership provides not only an online forum for discussions pertaining to musical theatre training and the exchange of ideas and resources, but also access to our annual conference, which alternates between US and international locations.

First in Class and Beyond

We're committed to promoting the highest standards in the education and training of musical theatre performers, teachers, coaches, and consultants for all performance media. We serve teachers and administrators who teach students in professional musical theater training programs.
