The TCU School of Music offers a world-class education from a faculty that includes nationally and internationally recognized musicians in woodwind instruments. The curriculum includes personalized instruction and performance opportunities in an equally supportive and challenging environment.

The TCU School of Music offers the following degree programs in woodwinds:

The School of Music also offers a Bachelor of Arts in music and a music minor.

In addition, the School of Music offers the Artist Diploma program for exceptional woodwind performers who seek a conservatory approach rather than the traditional course of study leading to an academic degree with a performance major. It’s available to post-baccalaureate students.

Scholarship support is available for talented undergraduate and graduate music majors. Assistantships that include full-tuition remission plus a stipend are available for graduate students.
