Areas of Study
Study, interpret, and revel in the universal “language without words”
Trinity offers a B.M. 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. The fifth-year Master of Arts in Teaching—recently ranked 7th in the nation—allows music education majors to receive both the B.M. and M.A.T. in five years.
Trinity University proudly joined other schools around the world when it became an All-Steinway campus. Two professors hand-picked studio pianos, smaller grand pianos, and a very special 9-foot concert grand piano for recitals.
