TBME Harmony Awards


To honor music educators who have made outstanding and significant contributions to the profession


Do you know a GREAT music teacher? Do you know someone who always works behind the scene but is rarely recognized for their accomplishments? Now is the time to nominate!!!!
For every performer who makes it to the stage, there was a teacher who played a critical role in getting them there. And really, that's true for all of us who are making music today. Maybe they introduced you to your first instrument. Or they showed you how to get over your stage fright. Or maybe they just inspired you to have the confidence to go for it when you were ready to give up. Your assistance in identifying and nominating an individual who exemplifies these characteristics and should be considered for recognition is appreciated
Annually, Texas Black Music Educators recognizes individuals whose work has made a positive impact in music education in Texas. The purpose of these annual awards is to promote a greater understanding of and appreciation for music education, as well as to honor those individuals who are making a real difference in our community through their dedication to music education.
See the website for more details and get your nomination in by the end of November.
