The 2021 TMEA Clinic/Convention will be a virtual event held in February (schedule to come). We will continue to feature the best music education clinics, inspiring performances, and fantastic rates on products and services from our partners in the music industry.

We are dreaming big, and we look forward to sharing details about the incredible opportunities we are working quickly to finalize!

TMEA remains committed to the music students who are striving for the designation of 2021 TMEA All-Stater. The audition path leading to the selection of 1,800 All-Staters will remain a rigorous and meaningful journey, and we encourage students to continue their musical development toward such an achievement.

September 24, 2020: When we announced our shift to a virtual convention, the TMEA Executive Board declared its commitment to ensuring the path to All-State would remain a meaningful journey for all involved. In addition to developing a means for recorded auditions throughout our 33 Regions, the Executive Board is actively investigating an opportunity to host in-person rehearsals and performances of our 18 All-State ensembles in early June. We will communicate more details once they are finalized. Understand that our plans could be affected at any time, given our top priority remains the health and safety of all involved.

Since 1925, we have offered music educators the lowest fees for the best convention, and that commitment remains. With our 2021 convention being a virtual event, it will become even more accessible by music educators across our state, nation, and world!
