Our Mission: To foster excellence in performance, teaching, creativity, and scholarship while affirming music as an integral part of a classic liberal arts education.

You will excel and grow as an artist in a School of Music that is large enough to afford students world-class musical opportunities, yet small enough to guarantee a personalized musical experience. TCU's
fully NASM-accredited music programs prepare the teachers,
performers, scholars and composers of tomorrow.
