The Music Program plays a vital role in the life of the University and the community. The training environment it provides continues to produce musicians of distinction for careers in a variety of professional fields including performance and music education. The faculty is comprised of dedicated professional musicians who are active in both performance and teaching.


In Fall 2017, the music department received an $800,000.00 gift from an anonymous donor, a gift that purchased 13 Steinway pianos.  This purchase resulted in Huston-Tillotson University becoming an All-Steinway School, a prestigious designation that only a select amount of schools share.  Currently, HT is the only such school in Central Texas.  Read more here about our All-Steinway designation.
