MTNA/TMTA Competitions

The MTNA/TMTA Performance Competitions exist to provide educational experiences for students and teachers and to recognize exceptionally talented young artists and their teachers in their pursuit of musical excellence. The state competitions are considered the primary educational level with the division and national levels showcasing outstanding performance and honoring significant pedagogical achievement.

The purpose of the MTNA/TMTA Composition Competition is to encourage creativity and self-expression in student musicians through the art of composing and to recognize their achievements, as well as the significant work of their teachers.

Texas Performance and Composition Competition winners perform on the Fargason Concert at the TMTA Convention in June. 

All applications must be submitted to MTNA online.
