COVID-19 Updates

TMEA music events and meetings scheduled from March 16th through 29th are to be suspended.
Decisions on the impact of COVID-19 on all future TMEA events and competitions will be communicated as they become available.


Accessing the Audition Entry Process

You must be a current Active, Institutional, or Life member to enter students for auditions.

The TMEA Audition Entry Process uses your membership login information. If it has been more than two years since you have had an active TMEA membership, you must contact the Membership Department to re-enable your account. If you have not previously been a TMEA member you must become a member before accessing these pages.

The login is your TMEA Member ID. If you do not remember your password you can reset it using the link on the login page.

When navigating through the audition entry process, please use the navigation links provided on the page instead of the back button on your internet browser. Using the back button may cause a "Page Expired" warning. If this occurs, just refresh the page to view it again.

Update Your Information

If you have not already updated your personal information through membership registration, please do so before logging in for the first time. If you have already renewed your membership, there is a menu option for information update only.
