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.

All-Steinway School

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.
