Frequently Asked Questions
How do I register?
There are two ways to register:
Online at www.tmta.org under the “Conference” tab between March 1 and May 26
On-site at the Waco Convention Center during the Conference
Those who pre-register will find their badges at the registration desk in Chisolm Hall at the Waco Convention Center. Ensemble and Performance Contest participants and guests should arrive early enough to get their badges, which are required for entry into the rooms.
Those registering on or before May 7 receive a discounted price!
Who should register?
Everyone attending the Conference must register. This includes anyone attending ensemble concerts, performance contests, dress rehearsals, guest artist recitals, etc. The only events NOT requiring a badge are the Jo Ann Dunn Fargason Memorial Concert on Thursday and the Senior Awards Reception on Saturday.
Participating students need not register separately for the conference. Their event registration doubles as their conference registration.
Parents and guests must register to attend any event in which their child is participating.

Conference attendees will enjoy the special rates of $155 (king) and $159 (queens), plus tax at the Waco Hilton and the Waco Courtyard Marriott before the group rate cut-off of May 13, 2024.
