It is undeniable that NT is a music school and has
been since its opening in 1890.
The Music Conservatory Course was one of nine
classes offered by President Joshua C. Chilton's bro-
chure for Texas Normal College and Teacher Training
Institute, NT's first name.
As the college grew, so did the music department.
By 1947 the number of musicans and faculty had
grown enough to form the present School of Music,
the second largest in the nation, with more than 1400
music majors and undergraduate degrees offered in
performance, composition, theory, jazz studies, music
education and musicology.
Many faculty members are concert performers,
composers or professional conductors. More than 600
public performances are given each year by students,
artist-faculty members and visiting artists.
Under the guidance of Marceau Myers, dean of the
school, the School of Music expanded into the Music
Complex in 1979.
