    Hello,

    My brother is looking at schools next year and is wondering which schools offer full rides for trumpet or music majors who play trumpet. He has won many competitions and has been to State two years in a row in Texas as a sophomore and a junior (probably will be as a senior too). Any help on who offers full rides and which schools are best for music majors would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Honestly, no one, if any. He has to be really good! I know quite a few people who boast that and more and didn't get full rides. My school, Sam Houston (you are probably in the Houston area so you've probably heard) offers the Fisher Tull full endowment scholarship to 1 person. Are you ATSSB or TMEA? Either way it means none or very little, NTC, and things like that make a difference. If you think he is that good, try a conservatory like Eastmen or Curtis. UNT will laugh. Maybe A&M Commerce, they would be the best bet.

    Come up sometime! You are always more than welcome. I would advise taking a lesson with Mr. Adams, he is AMAZING.
