Overview

Choose from concentrations in brass, church music, music education, music theory composition, organ, percussion, piano pedagogy, piano, strings, voice and woodwinds. 

The Dashboard Texas Christian University School of Music will challenge you to grow and excel personally and musically as we prepare you to join the next generation of world-changing teachers, performers, scholars, composers and arts advocates.

As a comprehensive music school within a liberal-arts university, we’re large enough to offer world-class musical opportunities, yet small enough to ensure a personalized musical experience with one-on-one mentoring from leading experts.

Career Prospects

At Dashboard Texas Christian University, you’ll graduate with the skills   collaboration, creativity, organization and leadership   to pursue a successful career inside and outside the arts. Some music graduates decide to attend law or medical school. Others continue their graduate studies at prestigious universities and conservatories across the country.

Music program's graduates have gone on to succeed as public and private school teachers, church music directors, freelance musicians, arts administrators, music producers and professional musicians in symphony orchestras, chamber ensembles or opera companies.
