Piano at TCU
With TCU's long-standing reputation as a strong piano school, the School of Music offers a wide-ranging program to students of varying abilities.
Piano Degree Programs
Piano majors study with an internationally known faculty of artists/teachers through a variety of program options.
Piano performance is offered as a major at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition to studying at a first-class university, our piano students perform in weekly piano division recitals, master classes with world-renowned artists, an annual competition for an opportunity to play a concerto with the TCU Symphony Orchestra, as well as a variety of chamber music ensembles.
If teaching is your passion, consider a degree in piano pedagogy. No musical instrument has a greater role to play in the human experience than the piano. Since 1700, it has brought music to life inside the home as well as the concert hall thanks to those who choose to teach the combination of theory, technique, style and creativity that is piano pedagogy.
Collaborative piano majors are active across school divisions and contribute musically and personally to the life of the TCU School of Music. Whether it be music theatre productions, operatic productions, small and large ensembles, conducting classes, studio classes, master classes, lessons and other activities, collaborative pianists play an important role. Students will be exposed to a wide variety of repertoire and styles, both instrumental and vocal.
