Texarkana Community Music Education

About Us

CONVENIENTLY located on two different campuses in the bi-state city of Texarkana USA, we share our facilities with both Trinity Presbyterian Church at 2623 North Robison Road in Texarkana, Texas and Veritas Christian Academy located on the campus of Grace Covenant Church at 2101 East 50th Street in Texarkana, Arkansas.

OUR students enjoy both private lessons and group classes taught in a warm and inviting Christian environment. With a team of excellent instructors, we offer instruction in all aspects of music education, theory, composition and transposition. Specializing in Piano and all of the orchestral string instruments including Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass, we also offer primary instruction in Woodwinds, Brass, Guitar and Voice.

JUST as any other Fine Arts education program, we offer our students a structured schedule of lessons on a semester basis. The Spring Semester consists of 18 weeks over five months starting in January and ending in May. The Summer Semester is 11 weeks during the three months of June through August. The Fall Semester is 14 weeks during the four months of September through December.

TCME (referred to as “ T - C - Me ”) is a comprehensive music education program. It has long been a dream to have a community orchestra for the citizens of the Greater Texarkana metroplex that showcases local talent. TCME began to realize this dream nine years ago, offering local youth an opportunity to perform with other players of all ages with all types of musical instruments. It is a positive, fun-filled, educational atmosphere where the participants learn how to play with other musicians, as well as learn about proper musical terminology, music history, different styles of music, and a wide variety of composers.

WE have expanded our vision as we continue to grow into the future and look forward to helping others develop their fullest potential, enriching their lives by learning the joy of making music. Welcome to TCME ~ Contact us today for further information.

“THERE’S so much more to being a musician than simply reading the written music. As notes on a page, they are just a road map – the skeleton of the subject. Musicianship involves not only the skill to play the written notes accurately, but also the intuitive process of learning to interpret and translate the spaces between the notes. Technicians play every note correctly, but true musicians have learned to actually communicate the emotional characteristics of the music – to truly move the listener – to tug at their very soul.”
