About The Butler School of Music:
The Butler School of Music prepares students for productive careers as performers, teachers, composers, and scholars and for satisfying lives as informed and responsible members of a democratic society. In accordance with the University’s mission, the school also seeks to extend the boundaries of knowledge and human experience through research and the creation of new music. While preserving the best of traditional education in music, the school seeks to prepare students for the changing realities of the modern world through engagement with diverse musical traditions, community outreach, and new technologies that can be used creatively to further the art of music. Students and faculty from the Butler School of Music give over 500 performances on the UT campus each year. They also participate in the School’s extensive local outreach programs, which last year reached thousands of audience members across the state of Texas.
