Welcome to our website. The Texas Private School Music Educators Association, founded in 1992, is an organization of over 200 private school music educators dedicated to promoting excellence in music education. TPSMEA is comprised of four divisions: Band, Orchestra, Vocal, and Elementary. For our returning members and new colleagues, I invite you to take advantage of the opportunities that are offered through TPSMEA.   Check the website often, as it is the official means of communication within our divisions and from the State and Executive Boards.  Also consult the Handbook often for detailed procedures for each performance and audition event.

You will find your colleagues of TPSMEA are committed music educators who live by our mission to develop and nurture young musicians in an environment which offers opportunities providing enrichment and achievement for students across the state.  Music is an essential, vibrant part of our being, and we are dedicated to the reality that Music Is For Life!

It is truly an honor to serve you in our shared journey of music making.  Please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of the board if you have any questions or suggestions.
