The American College of Musicians National Guild of Piano Teachers
Guild is the largest, non-profit organization of piano teachers in the world.  The primary function is to establish definite goals and awards for piano students of all levels and grades.  These goals provide definite direction and a measurement for progress.  Students have a yearly opportunity to attain these goals through non-competitive adjudication, where they are judged on individual merit.  I've been a member since 1998.  On June 30, 2010, I was inducted into their Hall of Fame.  Participation in Guild is mandatory for my students.
Active Adjudicator

I am an active adjudicator for the Ohio Music Teachers Association at both the state and district levels, the National Guild Piano Playing Auditions, the Ohio Federation of Music Clubs and the American Guild of Music.
