Percussionists leave TCU with a broad knowledge of many aspects of music and specifically the percussion family. Many of our graduates enter the workforce specializing in education. These graduates have distinguished themselves as some of the finest educators in their fields, teaching percussion at the high school, middle school or elementary levels. Additionally, TCU percussion alumni often continue their studies in graduate programs and some have gone on to teach percussion at the collegiate level. Many of our graduates are performing music full time for a living, while others perform on a part-time basis. We also have a number of published composers among our graduates.
