Full list of Texas UIL Tapspace Titles (2024)

Tuesday, January 30th, 2024

We’re headed to the San Antonio for the Texas Music Educator’s Association (TMEA) convention next week! It’s one of our favorite places to witness the power of music education, eat some great Tex-Mex, and visit with some great people in the Lone Star state.

Through the University Interscholastic League (UIL), Texas has an influential list of prescribed music titles for solo and ensemble events. We’re honored to have a large portion of our catalog sanctioned on this list! Download a complete listing of all Tapspace titles on the UIL list, organized by event, grade, and UIL code.

25 years!

Saturday, November 4th, 2023

They say the older you get, the more time flies. And they’re right. It seems like just yesterday when we were roommates and decided to start a little business without much of a plan. And here we are – 25 years later.

Thank you to everyone who make our little drum song business run – from our authors, to our customers, and all the teammates and industry partners in between, it’s humbling to see how our work spreads to all corners of the globe. We’re very proud of that and looking forward to the next 25.
