2013 TSGSM Group Picture

On December 2, 1995, a group of interested, committed singers met in the home of Dr. and Mrs. B. F. McLemore after the Saturday night session of the singing convention in Jasper for the sole purpose of discussing the feasibility of starting a music school in Texas. For a number of years, many interested people had kept this idea "on the front burner," and it was decided at the December meeting that the first session of the Texas Southern Gospel School of Music, Inc. (TSGSM), would be held in June of 1997. The 2015 session is our 19th, and Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas, has been home for TSGSM since its inception.

TSGSM offers the highest caliber of instruction in the field of gospel music. Each student is placed in classes according to his or her age and music experience. The study of gospel music instills confidence, creativity, competence, and love for God. Students will find their attendance at TSGSM a very rewarding experience and are expected to attend all classes except when attending private lessons.

The TSGSM is a Christian organization. Those participating in its activities are expected to conduct themselves accordingly.

The purpose of the TSGSM, a non-profit organization, is to teach, promote, preserve, and nurture the singing, playing, and writing of gospel music by people of all ages in churches, church choirs, and gospel singing conventions.

Closing Program

The closing program will be Friday night, July 17, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. in the Dawson Auditorium at Navarro College. The public is invited to attend the concert, and admission is free.
