What Is Tau Beta Sigma?
Tau Beta Sigma (TBΣ) is a co-educational national honorary band organization dedicated to serving college and band programs. TBΣ nationally numbers 3,000 active members in 140 active chapters, and over 40,000 alumni. The Gamma Epsilon chapter of TBΣ is located at the beautiful University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida.
Tau Beta Sigma operates primarily as a student service and leadership recognition society whose chief aim is to assist the Director of Bands in developing the leadership and enthusiasm that they require of their band. Our goals are not only to provide the band with organized and concentrated service activities, but to give our membership valid and wholesome experiences in organization, leadership, and social contacts. The honorary nature of membership is based on our premise that "it is an honor to be selected to serve"—this band, its department of music, its sponsoring institution, and the cause of band music in the nation's colleges and universities.
It's An Honor to Be Selected
We are University of Miami's chapter of Tau Beta Sigma: Gamma Epsilon. We serve the Band of the Hour, the University of Miami Bands, and the surrounding community.
The Gamma Epsilon chapter of Tau Beta Sigma is a service organization based around music and rooted in sisterhood. We seek to further the University of Miami Bands and to provide service to the greater community. Through our shared love of music, we strive to build meaningful bonds both within our chapter and with those we wish to serve. Driven by our passion for the ideals of Tau Beta Sigma, we utilize music to its fullest potential to work towards these goals.
The Frost School of Music, one of two schools established in 1926 when the University of Miami was founded, is one of the largest and most elite music schools located in a private university in the U.S., and one of the most comprehensive in all of higher education.
