TMTA seeks to raise standards of music teaching and performance in the state,
to cultivate fraternal relations among members of the profession, to support members in all matters pertaining to their profession, to develop productive relationships with school and community organizations, and to promote accreditation for qualified music teachers in Tennessee.
Despite the ongoing uncertainty with the COVID-19 pandemic, TMTA remains committed in our support of students and teachers across the state, and we plan to go forward with the 2020 TMTA Competitions with video performances. Several local associations were unable to hold qualifying auditions this year due to the untimely occurrence of events and we would therefore like to extend an invitation not only to those having received a superior at local auditions, but also to those who could not participate in their local auditions, to join us at state.
Registration is now open and closes Saturday, May 30 at 11:59 p.m. CENTRAL time. Applicants will need to upload their performance videos to YouTube and copy the video URLs into the corresponding “Title” field in the TMTA registration form. Please make every effort to submit early to avoid technical problems that could prevent a student’s participation. No new entries or changes in repertoire are accepted after the deadline. Please see the competitions page for complete instructions.
