The Music Teachers’ National Association held its 34th annual meeting at Vassar, the first meeting to be held at a women’s college.  The business of the conference included an open meeting of the American branch of the International Musical Society, and the attendees were entertained on December 31 by an afternoon organ concert in the Chapel by Wallace Goodrich, the dean of the New England Conservatory of Music, and an evening recital by the prima donna contralto of the Metropolitan Opera, Carrie Bridewell.

Professor of Music George Gow was the association's president for 1912.
