    August 2014 Dear Music Students: It is with the great pleasure that I welcome you to the UTB Department of Music. This music program and its faculty are committed to your success as the first priority. The national professional reputations and artistic accomplishments of our faculty add very special, proven dimensions to our program in developing and training our music majors. In November 2007, our music program received accreditation from the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM). This prestigious designation is due to the exceptional caliber of our music faculty, extraordinary administrative support, and our outstanding students. This handbook has been prepared to assist you in many aspects of your experience with us. It contains information on Department of Music policies that we hope will be useful to you. I hope that you will have a productive and enjoyable year. Cordially, Dr. Tom Nevill Chair, Department of Music
