We are the School of Music at the University of Texas at San Antonio. As an emerging Tier One university, our music program matches the same stride. Our students perform in a variety of settings, from traditional ensemble performances to art gallery exhibitions to pop-up concerts across campus.

UTSA has a tradition of investing in, recognizing, and encouraging promising musicians who seek careers in music. Former UTSA scholarship recipients and graduates are successfully teaching in public schools and universities, attending prestigious graduate schools, conducting professional ensembles, performing in major orchestras, producing their own weekly television programs, and winning prestigious performance competitions. Former students include a past winner of the Steinway Piano Competition and the National Metropolitan Opera Auditions.

DEV NOTE: the above is a combination of UTSA School of Music Facebook and Youtube About sections.

The School of Music offers B.A. and M.A. degrees. In addition, students can pursue a Masters's Certificate in Instrumental Performance or Music Pedagogy. We also offer a variety of Minors to enhance your music education.
