About the TCU Band


The TCU Bands are a vital part of campus life at Texas Christian University. Members come from all academic disciplines within the University, and in fact, a large portion of the membership in the various bands at TCU comes from outside the School of Music. This diverse mixture of people and interests provides a truly unique environment found in few campus organizations.

Membership in the bands carries with it a significant responsibility to uphold and continue that tradition. It involves dedication, achievement, and hard work. There is always a place in the TCU Bands for anyone who exhibits these important qualities. If pride, excellence, hard work, friendship, and teamwork interest you, the TCU Bands are for you. Join us!
