As a student in TCU's School of Music, you will study with TCU's outstanding faculty members as well as listen to, interact, and study with outstanding guest artists from throughout the world. 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.

The School of Music primarily is housed in TCU's Ed Landreth Hall and the Mary D. and F. Howard Walsh Center for Performing Arts. Ed Landreth Hall contains teaching, practice, and rehearsal facilities as well as a 1200-seat auditorium with superb acoustics. Numerous pianos, many of them grands (Texas' first All-Steinway School); four pipe organs; two harpsichords; a clavichord; a collection of Renaissance instruments; the Upchurch studio for Electro-Acoustic Music; and other instrumental collections serve the School.

The Mary D. and F. Howard Walsh Center for Performing Arts houses a superb 325-seat recital hall of unprecedented design with outstanding acoustics (PepsiCo Recital Hall), an instrumental rehearsal hall, a choral rehearsal hall, and a piano wing furnished exclusively with Steinway pianos that includes teaching studios, practice rooms, and an electronic piano laboratory.

A large, comprehensive music library complete with recordings, reference books, texts, scores, and listening rooms is housed in the Mary Couts Burnett Library, with other School of Music programs housed in Jarvis Hall, Music Building South, Foster Hall, and Waits Hall.
