2020 TFME Foundation Award Nomination

This award was established to honor private teachers of instruments and voice that have provided quality teaching, leadership, and passion for excellence over a sustained period of time in Texas. The very high level of performance by Texas school ensembles is in no small part due to students individually studying their craft with expert guidance.
