Be a Music Education Advocate

Advocacy Materials for Distribution

TMEA is committed to maintaining and improving school music education for all students and encourages all Texans to support the same. All students should have access to a well-balanced, comprehensive, high-quality, sequential program of music taught by teachers who are certified in music education. It is our responsibility to share the value of our art form with school administrators, members of boards of education and local communities. It is essential that not only all music educators work together but all fine arts teachers and supporters in each district strive to carry the message of the importance of fine arts to the education of our students.

Local Advocacy

Students, their parents, teachers, and community leaders throughout the state must ensure that the local and state leaders representing them are aware of their priorities. Advocating for music education in the schools is a statewide effort requiring constant local participation.

TMEA is committed to advocating at the state level as well as providing support to enable effective local advocacy. Resources are provided to help you deliver a consistent and effective message in support of music education for all Texas students.


Leading to and during an active state legislative session, TMEA distributes information to those interested in and supportive of fine arts education through the GoArts website. To receive updates and information that can help you support fine arts education with your state leaders, register with GoArts as a supporter.
