Partner With Us!

Texas Music Partners invites schools to partner with us and enjoy the greatest benefit in technology and music education.  Think of it as a sustaining membership at no cost to the school!  Partners also get scheduling priority, so sign up now!

 

One of Texas Music Partners’ goals is to show students how to creatively combine STEAM education and music, but there is more to it than that. TMP also tries to offer students ways to find a creative passion, to continue to stay creative through that passion, and keep a positive mindset through good times and challenging times.

 

The best way to share these messages is to reach students every year, through their educational development, and offer a variety of projects and courses students can try and get a feel for.  Texas Music Partners has always tried to partner with central Texas schools, which should be evident as “Partner” is in our name.  Now we have a partnering program specifically to address these goals.

 

Our Courses are Free

Since Texas Music Partners is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, our courses are free to schools during the school year.  We are currently offering an 8-week partnering program to all elementary schools in the area and plan to expand our partnering program to middle schools and high schools in the near future.  Don’t forget, we have individual courses as well (schedule an individual course here).  Middle schools and high schools are invited to check out our Thinking Outside the Box courses.

 

School Districts we cover:

Austin ISD Manor ISD
Del Valle ISD Pflugerville ISD
Eanes ISD Round Rock ISD
Hays CISD San Marcos CISD
Lake Travis ISD

We also offer courses to charter and private schools in the same areas.

 

To partner with TMP all a school has to do is agree to bring us on campus to teach the following courses each year.
