Convention Attendance


TMEA hosts the nation’s largest music educators convention at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in downtown San Antonio. In most recent years, the convention has drawn over 26,000 attendees. Through this annual convention, TMEA offers its members professional growth, inspiration, and motivation to help them deliver the best music education experience possible for the students of Texas.

The annual convention features over 300+ workshops for Band, Orchestra, Vocal, Elementary and College educators and more than 100+ performances (from elementary through college and professional groups), including performances by TMEA Honor Orchestras and Honor Bands, middle school and high school ensembles selected through a multi-tiered audition process. The convention also showcases over 1,100 exhibit booths representing all facets of the music education industry. Over 26,000 people from Texas and beyond attend the clinics, concerts, research sessions and presentations by internationally recognized educators.

The convention culminates on Saturday with the TMEA All-State Concerts sponsored by the Band, Orchestra, and Vocal Divisions.
