As one of the largest music programs at a two-year college in Texas, we graduate students every year who are ready to excel at the university level and beyond.

Universities actively recruit TJC Music majors, and our students transfer all over the United States. At TJC you'll have performance opportunities as a freshman and sophomore that you won't get anywhere else.

What Our Students Say

Lonnie cook

"The staff of the music department will always be very close to my heart. My voice teacher is still one of the most influential people in my life because I use the techniques she taught me every day on the job directing middle school choir in Tyler ISD. Upon leaving TJC I was more than equipped to enter SMU at the same level as the other juniors there."

Choir Director, Three Lakes Middle School

Julianne casey

"TJC prepared me in such a way that I am now an Opera Performance student of the Purchase College Conservatory of Music at the State University of New York in Purchase, New York. Upon arrival at my new institution, I knew without a doubt, I would never be here today without all I have gained from my alumni."
