TMEA is an organization of over 11,000 school music educators dedicated to promoting excellence in music education. TMEA comprises five divisions: Band, Orchestra, Vocal, Elementary and College. TMEA leaders carefully monitor the actions of all state decision-making bodies on issues affecting fine arts instruction.
The TMEA Executive Board announces that to support excellence in student musical development and promote health and safety, all TMEA and ATSSB auditions through January 10, 2021 (middle and high school), will be conducted via uploaded video recordings. As details are finalized, we will notify the membership, and Region officers will receive training.
TMEA condemns the ongoing violence against the Black community and stands with all those we serve. Read the full statement here.
