Music Ambassadors

TCU Music Ambassadors represent the School of Music at various recruitment and special events virtually or on campus, meet with prospective students and their families, provide tours of the music buildings, assist with Mondays at TCU and audition days, serve on panels, and represent the best and brightest within the School of Music. They also identify outreach opportunities to area schools to share information about the important role music plays in our society and what it’s like to major in music in college.

“I love that TCU is a campus that cares. We have engaged and friendly faculty and a positive atmosphere that fosters creativity and collaboration. The College of Fine Arts provides opportunities to promote musicianship and mentorship. TCU has been my home away from home. I have created life-long memories, including going to Washington D.C. with the Trombone Choir to perform at the American Trombone Workshop. Frogs, forever!
