The TMTA SA Performance Contest is an unforgettable event during the convention.
The TMTA SA Ensembles are always packed with excited students, families, and teachers.
The DKO (Digital Keyboard Orchestra) keeps growing and growing and the students have so much fun participating.

El Paso MTA
The El Paso Music Teachers Association was incorporated in 1981. They have about 40 members and meet on the second Thursday of each month. Besides taking care of business matters, they usually have a program presented by a guest speaker or by a member sharing their expertise and experience. They have many activities and events for their students. Besides the state activities, they have three recitals at the Chamizal National Memorial Theatre, recitals at various places around their community (Botanical Gardens, El Paso Zoo, and a Halloween Recital at Sunland Park Mall), an Around the World Recital, a Baroque Competition, a recital especially for boys, and two festivals in which students are judged and earn points toward a trophy. For the past few years, they have been involved with the Braden Aboud Charity Foundation. Besides helping raise money for El Paso’s students, they earn money to help their families attend the TMTA Convention for Ensembles and Performance Contest. EPMTA is a welcoming family that is dedicated to giving their students the best musical education and experiences possible.
