The curricula in music at Houston Baptist University are designed to provide the specialization and depth of study necessary for the Performance Major (voice & keyboard) and Music Education Major. The Department of Music provides an artistic environment which offers many professional experiences to students in their areas of specialization. A low student-faculty ratio is maintained, which allows for close supervision by a professional. The members of the faculty are active in performance and research, and serve in a leadership capacity for a number of metropolitan arts ensembles and organizations. The training and experience of the faculty is international in scope, and the highest standards of teaching are maintained.

Students are admitted to the Department of Music by audition only. Grants-in Aid, College Development Grants, and Choral Scholarship recommendations are made upon the advice of the auditions committee. All HBU students are encouraged to actively participate in a music school ensemble regardless of major.
