University Bands 

You do not need to be a music major to join an ensemble.

The University Band is a 90+ ensemble that meets in the spring each year and performs two concerts of diverse repertoire including traditional music, transcriptions, as well as newer compositions. This ensemble is open to everyone and is non-auditioned. Members are largely non-majors looking to continue their musical involvement past high school while enjoying a less performance-oriented pace to the course or music majors further developing secondary instrumental technique. The wide variety of music performed provides a rich service to the diverse campus community at Texas Tech University.

From the Director

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Texas Tech University band web site. We are housed in the School of Music within the J.T. & Margaret Talkington College of Visual and Performing Arts and boast over 600 students participating in any number of concert or athletic bands during the year. I invite you to take your time, browse, and get to know us while considering the possibilities of becoming a part of the rich heritage of excellence in the Texas Tech Band family. We are very proud of our program, alumni, and outstanding students and look forward to meeting you as a future Red Raider. Go Tech!

Sincerely,
Dr. Sarah McKoin
