Groves Elementary Percussion performs three selections at the February 2023 Humble ISD Board of Trustees meeting.
Humble ISD believes in teaching the whole child, and fine arts plays an important role in that process. The Texas Music Educators Association holds an annual conference for music educators and administrators throughout Texas. TMEA is the largest music education conference in the nation with over 26,000 attendees, over 280 professional development clinics by music education experts, and many musical performances. Each year TMEA invites outstanding elementary, middle and high school music ensembles to perform at their conference, and this year two ensembles from Humble ISD were selected — Kingwood High School’s Only Men Aloud Tenor-Bass Choir and Groves Elementary Percussion.
Groves Elementary’s 4th and 5th grade Percussion Ensemble submitted a video recording which was assessed for quality of performance and for demonstration of proper performance etiquette. They are one of only four elementary school instrumental groups that were selected to perform at this year’s convention.
