COVID-19 Updates

All in-person TMEA meetings and events are suspended for the remainder of the school year. For the latest updates, go to the COVID-19 Updates page. The information on the COVID-19 webpage supersedes any standard program information presented on this website.

TMEA continually informs state lawmakers about the importance of music education in the overall education of Texas school children. With each legislative session, TMEA strives to maintain and strengthen the position of fine arts education in law. When legislation is proposed or pending, TMEA analyzes the impact of that legislation and works to communicate it with its members. Check back for updates, especially leading up to and during a legislative session.
