Who We Are

The Baylor University School of Music provides transformational experiences that prepare students for careers in music. Our students thrive in a Christian environment characterized by a nurturing resident faculty, an unwavering pursuit of musical excellence, a global perspective, dedication to service, and devotion to faith. They investigate the rich musical and cultural heritage of the past, develop superior musical skills and knowledge in the present, and explore and create new modes of musical expression for the future. While preparing for future leadership roles, our students join with School of Music faculty in enhancing the quality of community life, enriching the larger culture, and making Baylor a place in which heart, mind and soul coalesce.

Baylor University's School of Music is a member of the National Association of Schools of Music and the Texas Association of Music Schools. Students who major in music enjoy small class sizes and personal attention both in and out of the classroom from faculty who are active musicians with a variety of specialties in research, composition, and performance.
