Mission Statement

The School of Music is committed to excellence in music teaching and learning for all students at Texas State. As a unit within Texas State, we provide a liberal education with emphasis on cultural values by offering special course work in the arts and humanities.

The School of Music offers thorough preparation for careers in music, music education, music performance and sound recording technology. In addition, it provides opportunities for all university students to develop and/or enhance musical skills and cultural understanding. The School also serves as an outstanding cultural resource for the university and San Marcos communities.

Music graduates with teacher certification work as band directors, choir directors, orchestra directors, or general music teachers. Music Performance graduates perform, establish their own teaching studios, attend graduate school, or use their music degree as a foundation for their careers. Sound Recording Technology graduates work as sound engineers, producers, technicians, and post-production editors in the recording and entertainment industries. Bachelor of Arts graduates work in arts administration, musicology, librarianship, and other music-related fields such as law, management, and sales. The choices of profession for a student completing a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Music are numerous.

Somos Músicos -- "We are Musicians" -- express with simplicity our solidarity of purpose and cooperation within an extraordinary community of musical artists, scholars, and composers: the students and faculty of the School of Music. Our unified mission is threefold: to make music together, to develop ourselves and our art, and to contribute value to our society.

Courses Offered

Courses are offered in individual and ensemble performance, music education, history, literature, theory, composition, jazz, Latin, and sound recording. All university students, both music majors and non-music majors, are encouraged to participate in performing ensembles. However, due to the limited availability of private applied music instruction, as well as certain other music classes, the School may use the following criteria for determining students’ access to these courses:

  1. student’s overall musical talent, musical achievement, and performance/teaching potential as determined by audition; and/or
  2. studio/class space availability,
  3. academic standing as represented by GPA, and
  4. other appropriate indicators.

School Policies

Those planning careers in music must have a high level of musical skill, music reading ability, and understanding. To help evaluate musical skills for counseling and placement purposes, the School of Music requires all music majors to pass several evaluations and academic requirements.

Credit by examination is available for Music Theory I - IV and Piano Techniques I - IV only before entering the course sequence at Texas State. Students testing out of one or more of the courses above or the entire proficiency exam(s) must remit $10 to the University's Testing Center (set fee whether receiving credit for one or more courses) before a CR grade will be processed by the Registrar's Office for the course(s). See an academic advisor and the School of Music’s website for details.

A student who leaves Music major status in good standing can be readmitted as a Music major without re-auditioning if returning within twelve (12) months. A Music student who fails to complete or pass (note: failing grades are F, N, and U) applied lessons or has not been a Music major at Texas State for more than twelve (12) months (i.e. not enrolling or two W grades in a row) will automatically be moved to a pre-music status by their academic advisor and must re-apply and/or re-audition to be accepted back as a Music major.

Music Theory Proficiency

Students seeking teacher certification must pass the theory proficiency examination no later than the semester before student teaching. All other music majors must pass the theory proficiency examination before applying for graduation. Theory proficiency requirements are available on the School of Music’s website. Note: No Music Theory Proficiency exam is required for BS students.

Piano Proficiency

All BA, BM – Music Studies, instrumental concentration students seeking teacher certification, and BM – Performance, jazz concentration students must pass the level II piano proficiency exam by the end of their fourth (4th) long semester. BM – Performance, keyboard concentration students must pass the piano majors piano proficiency exam by the end of their fourth (4th) long semester.

BM – Music Studies, choral concentration students must complete the level IV piano proficiency exam no later than the semester before student teaching. All other BM – Performance majors must complete the level IV piano proficiency exam before applying for graduation. Piano proficiency requirements are available on the School of Music’s website. Note: No Piano Proficiency exam is required for BS students.

Upper Level Competency Review

The upper level competency review (ULCR) helps music majors determine if they are pursuing the most suitable career/degree. On completion of four long semesters as a music major, the student’s total record is reviewed by the music faculty. This review is completed before the student enrolls for 3000-level courses in the degree area. The ULCR is offered at the end of each long semester. Specific information and requirements are available in the School of Music Student Handbook and the School of Music's website.

Transfer students with four or more semesters of music study should complete the exam at the end of the first long semester of study at Texas State.

Recital Attendance Requirements

Each semester, various recitals and concerts are presented by students, faculty, and visiting artists. All undergraduate music majors, with the exception of Bachelor of Science students, are required to attend a significant number of these events each semester, through enrollment in Departmental Recital. In addition, applied music instructors may require attendance at all recitals in the student's individual performance area.

Ensemble Requirements

All music majors with the exception of Sound Recording Technology must participate in the appropriate major ensemble each semester until all major ensemble requirements for the degree have been completed. Only one major and one secondary ensemble will be counted toward the student’s degree plan per semester. Continued participation in major ensembles after degree requirements are completed is strongly encouraged.

Senior Recital

A senior recital is required for all students enrolled in a Bachelor of Music degree program. Students seeking teacher certification must present the recital no later than the semester before student teaching. Specific requirements for the senior recital are described in the School of Music Student Handbook and on the School of Music's website.
