Who We Are

Music is essential to the human experience.

Take control of your future as you prepare for a career as a professional musician, educator, or industry leader. Our music students thrive in small class sizes and 1:1 studio courses with faculty across a variety of instrument areas and musical styles. From outstanding teachers in public schools, colleges, and universities, to professional careers as musicians and performers on some of the biggest stages, our students find their calling through a long tradition of excellence at Texas Tech.
