Biographical / Historical
Pearle Sewell was elected as the first president. Growing up her home was a ranch in West Texas where a piano was provided for her to learn and study music. She had six brothers on the isolated ranch. She graduated from Mary Hardin Baylor College and continued her studies at the American Conservatory in Chicago. In 1966 the association established in Mrs. Sewell’s honor an annual scholarship for a worthy music student.
The association is affiliated with the Texas Music Teachers Association and the Music Teachers National Association. Membership is made up of private and college teachers: members are instructive of wind, string, keyboard instruments, and voice. In 1975 the association became a member of the Corpus Christi Arts Council. Individual members participate in symphony guild and art and science museum projects in addition to other cultural activities in the community.
