A committee of elementary music, secondary band, orchestra, and vocal educators who are members of TMEA and the Texas Music Administrators Conference (TMAC) created this music curriculum for K–8 and Levels I–IV based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Music. The elementary team developed general music curriculums for grades K–6. Independent band, orchestra, and vocal curriculums have been developed for grades 6–8 and Levels I–IV. Download the documents applicable to your teaching assignments and use them as evidence to your administrators that you address the TEKS and how.

The development of this curriculum was the first step of a project to establish a statewide music assessment tool based on the TEKS. If your school is interested in participating in this assessment, contact TMEA Deputy Director Frank Coachman.
