Who we are

Welcome from our founder and director, Mandy Guilfoyle.

Texas Music Institute was founded in the fall of 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The school sprouted from the need for a place for high-level music teachers to teach and be paid their worth, and for students to receive world-class music education for rates that are less than what other music schools offer. Mandy, along with her husband Chris, also saw the need for a one-stop hub for young music students in Texas and beyond to gain access to performance, audition, scholarship, festival, and masterclass opportunities without having to search for it alone. TMI is proud to provide all of these important things and more for our students and our faculty members.
