Every summer, the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) releases its all-state SATB, SSAA, and TTBB choral audition selections, and every year, students begin a quest to find the sheet music for these selections. Many Houston-area and Katy-area music stores either do not carry All-State music or don’t regularly keep them in stock, which can make finding those pieces quite an adventure. KD Music and Arts does, however, carry the large school choral packets (the packets needed by Katy ISD and Cy-Fair ISD schools); specifically divided for male and female voices. If you’ve been looking for a place to buy those packets, then look no further: just give us a call at 281-828-1500 or stop by our convenient Katy Freeway location to get yours today.

Looking for a little extra preparation for All-State? KD Music and Arts offers world-class conservatory-style private vocal coaching; singing lessons are available onsite at our Katy Freeway location or online via Zoom.
