Who Are We?
Texas Music Partners is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is:
To combine music, the arts, and the STEAM approach (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) to learning, to help students succeed in school and find a creative passion.
To plant the seed of creativity in a student's mind so they learn to think outside the box and stay creative. To use creativity to help them problem solve, through school and as an adult.
We do this by promoting music: on its own, through other arts, and through academics, while showing students how to think positively and learn from their challenges, in order to gain experience and succeed as they get older.
We offer our programs, at no cost, to the learning institutions that use our services so we can reach more kids. Our goal is to help students find a passion for music and the arts alongside STEM education (STEAM)and have it manifest into interesting careers, avocations, or hobbies to keep their creative “muscle” toned into adulthood so they can think creatively and be successful.
Besides combining music and the arts with STEM education (STEAM), TMP also tries to help students use creativity to keep a positive mindset through good times and challenging times.
The best way to share these messages is to reach students every year, from elementary through high school. We offer a variety of projects and courses students can try, and get a feel for.
Texas Music Partners accomplishes our mission in different ways. We currently have 3 programs with different courses in each program to give students a variety of experiences and help them develop inquisitive, winning attitudes.
TMP offers courses to Central Texas Learning institutions to show kids how to do fun projects related to music and technology using a smartphone/tablet.
Live Music in the Schools (Coming soon)
This program teaches students about different styles of music, its history, and the artists that made them popular. We then bring in professional musicians to perform for them to see how musicians work together as a team. We also encourage students to learn to play music by signing up for band, orchestra, or choir.
Note: This program is ready to go, but due to lack of funding it is currently on hold.
These courses help keep students thinking creatively and stay positive. Thinking outside the box is important to learn early, so students can continue to develop when they become young adults and have to compete with the rest of the world and a rapidly changing job market.
Getting students interested in music and the arts, combined with STEM education is a great way to help ensure they stay in school and have a goal. Texas Music Partners wants to enhance our students’ curiosity and get them interested in choosing a fun, creative future in school, whether it is band, orchestra, choir, theater, math, science, etc.
