Earning a position in one of the Texas All-State bands is a very highly regarded accomplishment. The audition process consists of several extremely
competitive rounds, which may be quite a difficult task. Those who become selected will have the honor of performing at the annual TMEA Clinic/Convention in
San Antonio, TX.
Innovative Percussion artist, Mark Ford, has compiled a series of video clips that outlines preparation techniques of the Texas All-State audition
materials. Mark Ford is Professor of Percussion and Coordinator of Percussion Activities at the University of North Texas-Denton.For information on the audition materials for this
year, please visit the TMEA website at
