JaneChambersFrom the President’s Desk…

Welcome to a new academic year and to our TPSMEA home.  We send greetings to our returning members and look forward to meeting and working with our new TPSMEA associates.  It has been said that people make a place what it is.   You will find your colleagues of TPSMEA are committed music educators who live by our mission to develop and grow music opportunities that provide 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!

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 as yearly edits are made and the procedures for each performance and audition event are detailed.  You will see that any changes include the revision date.

This year we will recognize and celebrate the Tenth Anniversaries of the Children’s Honor Choir and the Middle Honor School Orchestra.  At their concert weekends in November and February respectively, each select ensemble will premiere a work commissioned for the special occasion.  The future of music education is found in these eager and enthusiastic young performers, and we invite you to come enjoy their accomplishments and that of TPSMEA.

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.


With best wishes,


New Members
