Administrative history

The British Columbia Registered Music Teachers' Association (BCRMTA) was founded in 1932 as the British Columbia Music Teachers' Federation, incorporating the Vancouver Music Teachers' Association (formed in 1920 with H. Roy Robertson as president) and other provincial groups. It was incorporated under the Societies act in 1921. It changed its name to the British Columbia Music Teachers' Association in 1935. In 1947 it received a provincial charter and was renamed the British Columbia Registered Music Teachers' Association. The BCRMTA is a no-profit organization established to promote a high professional and ethical standard for independent registered music teachers. It has over 1000 members in 22 Branches across BC. Members consist of professional music teachers with recognized music degrees or have successful teaching experience over a number of years. The organization offers programs that support teaching and performance.
