Musical Artistry. Engaging Education. Inspirational Guidance. At Texas A&M-Kingsville
, you will receive a personal approach to your studies and mentoring for your future. We combine our small class sizes and dedicated faculty to foster an immersive atmosphere with performance opportunities typically reserved for much larger programs.
The trumpet studio is composed of outstanding students in one of the strongest music departments in Texas. In the fall of 2019, the department will move into our new Music Education Complex
, a 90,000-square foot facility featuring ample practice space, individual ensemble rehearsal facilities, two performance halls, and a state-of-the-art recording studio, capable of recording from most rooms in the building. A virtual tour
is available for preview.
Students have performed at the International Trumpet Guild Conference, Texas Music Educators Association Convention, College Music Society National Conference, and competed at the National Trumpet Competition and marched with several different corps through DCI. In 2017-18, three ensembles were selected to compete at NTC, the most of any university in the country, with one finishing in the Top 8. Its student organization is an affiliate chapter with the International Trumpet Guild and is host to the South Texas Trumpet Workshop.
