Texas Music Educators — Summer Conferences 2020


Welcome! We are thrilled to join the Texas Bandmasters Association (TBA), the Texas Choral Directors Association (TCDA) and the Texas Orchestra Directors Association (TODA) in presenting their 2020 virtual conventions. Combined, these three organizations have served music educators in Texas for 195 years!

Texas’ approximately 5.5 million K-12 students are lucky to have access to music programs led by dedicated band, choral and orchestra directors like you. Thank you!

Yamaha is an active advocate for music education. We want to empower music educators and help them strengthen their programs in any way we can. Join the Yamaha Educator newsletter for access to  advocacy, professional development, instruments, resources, partnerships in education and more.
