From February 12-15th, educators from across Texas and around the globe descended on San Antonio, Texas for the annual Texas Music Educators Association Clinic & Convention. Often regarded to as the largest music education convention of the year, TMEA was bigger than ever, boasting its highest attendance figures to date. Our now annual duo of PreSonus Education Market Manager Evan Brown and PreSonus House of Worship manager were in attendance manning the PreSonus booth, as well as our territory representatives Brandon Bishop and John Fedorko of Cowser Marketing!
The festivities kicked off Wednesday evening at the annual Technology in Music Education (TI:ME) TMEA Pre-Conference Reception. PreSonus is a longtime sponsor and partner of TI:ME and raffled 2 pairs of the ERIS HD10BT Headphones to lucky educators!
