The Cary-Apex Piano Teachers Association

Joining CAPTA

We would be happy for any teacher to join CAPTA!

We meet the second Thursday of each month from September through May at 9:30 a.m. at the Cary Arts Center located on Dry Avenue at the north end of Kildaire Farm Road in Cary. Exceptions are in December and May when we meet for a brunch at a different location. This will be announced in our online newsletter.

We feature several outstanding speakers during the year and also sponsor a Master Class/Recital (usually in February), two competitions, theory testing, and two CAPTA student recitals. We also sponsor a themed educational workshop for elementary age students of all abillities.

The deadline for full active membership is September 30th. However, members are welcome to join throughout the year. Active membership is available to all teachers who are currently teaching piano. Membership dues are $40.00 for the current year and are payable no later than May 15. A late fee of $10.00 will be assessed for all renewing members paying after May 15. New members who join between May 15 and December 31 must pay full dues of $40.00. New members who join between January 1 and the May meeting (the last program of the year) must pay one-half of annual dues ($20.00).

If you are interested in joining CAPTA please send email to or call Alice Zhao at 919-904-5284.
