Greetings, 

       Region entries are done online through the TMEA website.  Please do not wait until the last minute to complete your entries.
Technology has a way of breaking down without notice, and this will give you time to check your entries with the students.


 ===================  ONLINE ENTRY IS OPEN   ==================


**   You must be a member of both ATSSB and TMEA to enter your students for region auditions.  Copies of both cards must be attached to the "ATSSB Entry Cover Sheet".  

**  Do not fill out the “Declaration of Intent Form” unless you have a 1A/2A student auditioning for the ATSSB 3A, TMEA 4A, and TMEA 5A Band OR have a 3A student auditioning for the TMEA 4a and 5A Band.  It is assumed that all of the 1A/2A students are following the ATSSB 2A track AND all 3A students are following the ATSSB 3A track.  If you have a student going to a higher classification ATSSB 3A route or the TMEA route, fill out the “Declaration of Intent Form” and send it with your entries for ATSSB.

**  If you have students auditioning in both wind/percussion AND choir auditions, you must fill out the “Dual Certification” form and send it with your entries to me.  If you do not have a student going both choir and instrumental routes, don’t bother with it.

**  You will receive an Entry Confirmation Email (PDF) on Monday, November 25th showing the entries you submitted.  Check it for errors.  If you have any errors, go online and correct them BEFORE November 30th. After November 30, all corrections must be done at the audition site and directors must pay an additional entry fee ($10) per correction.

**  Here is a “Student Information Form”.  Click it, have each student type in their information for you, and then print.

**  When you have completed your online entries, please fill out, print, and mail the following items to me postmarked by           November 23rd:
