The UTB Music Department offers Bachelor of Music degree programs in Music Education and Performance, and a Master of Music degree in Music Education. UTB music majors receive a well-rounded music education with courses in applied music, music theory, music history, instrumental methods, education, and conducting, which prepare them to become effective music educators and professional performers.

All UTB flute students (music majors and minors) receive a weekly private lesson with Dr. Ballatori, and attend a weekly Studio Class where they perform for each other, and discuss special topics related to flute performance and teaching. Additional flute classes include a weekly Scales/Technique Class and Piccolo Class.
UTB flute students have the opportunity to perform in a variety of ensembles including the Rio Bravo Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Winds, UTB Symphony Orchestra, UTB Flute Choir, chamber ensembles, Mariachi Escorpion, Scorpio Consort, and many more.
