The Music Teachers Network began in 1997 on Chicago’s North Shore. Mike Simon, who had grown up in an entrepreneurial family, combined his passion for music and business by starting a network dedicated to finding the best teachers and matching them with people seeking the best for their children.
A nationwide music platform
As the idea took off, Mike began receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback. He decided to take the concept nationwide and soon was auditioning teachers in every state. At the same time, the Internet was becoming a universal platform, allowing MTN to become a nationwide network where music instructors could post their profiles and students and families could search for and connect with them.
MTN today – top quality and convenience
Today, MTN showcases more than 20,000 first-rate teachers across the country. They are skilled in a broad variety of instruments and teaching styles. They know how to convey the vision and passion of music and make it fun and fascinating for students. Every instructor has a professional profile with details on education, approach to teaching and more. And, as we have since 1997, we offer our “SELECT” program where we manually match teachers with students for the best possible fit.
We at MTN are dedicated to bringing music to everyone’s heart.
We live it. We love it. We share it.
