The Music - Piano Performance program at the Houston Baptist University is tailored for the specific talents of music students who are seeking a career in music. 


The Music - Piano Performance program at the Houston Baptist University states that small class sizes allow our students to study with mentor-professors, and build lifelong relationships with colleagues and faculty. Students may choose to participate in exciting ensemble experiences with Schola Cantorum, University Singers, the Opera Workshop, or the Chamber Music Ensemble. 

Selected students may collaborate with faculty to experience heightened challenges in the Music Honors Program. Performances by the world-class cultural organizations in the city – the Houston Symphony, Houston Grand Opera and Houston Ballet – are all included in several course requirements, and solo and chamber performances available from Da Camera, Nexus, Society for the Performing Arts, and the Friends of Music are readily available. 

The Department of Music presents between 50 and 70 programs each year, including student recitals, faculty concerts, major ensemble concerts and invited guest performances. The Choral program hosts a week-long residency each year by a well-known choral composer.
