The professors at TX State are not only extraordinary teachers, they are extraordinary people with a passion for creating meaningful music and fostering a supportive community of hard-working students. The collegiality and mutual respect in the department - faculty and students alike - make it one of the most open and inspiring I have ever experienced.
