Student and Alumni Stories
Students are the very core of everything we do. Our mission is to teach the next generation of performers, music educators, music therapists, music scholars, and non-majors who will have a life-long involvement with music. Every year we meet students from diverse backgrounds with new and interesting stories and experiences, and we want to share as many as we can.
