The Sioux Falls Area Music Teachers Association (SFAMTA) of the South Dakota Music Teacher's Association (SDMTA) was established in 1987 as an outgrowth of the Sioux Falls Piano Forum, with an initial membership of ten individuals. Since its inception, the chapter has grown to a membership of over seventy professional music educators, representing virtually all areas of instrumental, vocal, and piano instruction. The Sioux Falls Area Chapter provides excellent programming and educational opportunities for members and their students and also serves as an advocate for support of the arts in the Sioux Falls region and beyond.
The Sioux Falls Chapter meets at Schoppert's Piano Gallery in the Schmitt Music Building near 41st and Cliff Ave. in Sioux Falls. Meetings are held the first Thursday of the the month, September through April, with coffee time at 9:00am followed by the business meeting and a program.
