Whether you are considering a career in music or just enjoy making music, you'll feel at home at Trinity University. Majors and non-majors alike are encouraged and inspired by a dedicated music faculty, all of whom are committed to the education of undergraduate musicians.
Every year, a significant number of Trinity students are involved in the musical life of the University through ensemble participation, private lessons, and courses in music history, theory, and pedagogy. Ensembles are open to all students at the university. Students do not need to declare a music major to participate in choir, orchestra, wind ensemble, or any of the other groups that perform regularly.
Trinity offers a B.M. degree in Performance, Composition, or Music Education. For academic study of music, or students who want to double major in another field of study, we offer the B.A. in Music. One of our distinctive features of our program is the 5th-year M.A.T. degree which allows Music Education majors to receive both the B.M. and Masters degree in five years. Trinity's M.A.T. program (Master of Arts in Teaching) has recently been ranked 7th in the nation.
