About TNSS
Former Faculty and Staff

Former Faculty and Staff

Though it’s difficult to confirm a claim like this, we’re told that the Texas Normal Singing School is the oldest, still-active Singing School. In this storied seventy year history, many men and women have contributed to the Lord’s successes at TNSS. Below many of our fellow instructors and staff members from years past are listed (though this list is not exhaustive; updates and corrections are welcome). Many of these men and women have passed on from this life. We look forward to singing with them again in the eternal presence of God.
