Historical Note

The Houston Music Teachers Association, Inc., (HMTA) was organized in September 1941. They provide scholarships to young people through music competitions and festivals and winners' recitals and aid and support winners of competitions in the furtherance of their careers. In the 1947-48 season they had 100 members and Carter Music Company sponsored "The Steinway Piano Contest" for HMTA students. Fifty-four students participated and the winner's recital was held at Carter Music Hall. This was repeated in 1949 and then Carter Music Company withdrew. HMTA continued with the contests and and a winner's recital is held annually.
