I've always loved how different songs have different emotional qualities. When I play, I can connect with the emotion of the piece and express myself. I am pursuing a BME because I want to share my passion with my future students.

Music is an all inclusive community. I’m in Music Ed because I want to run a program that makes students believe they’re a part of something special and that even when they’re going through something rough, they can depend on orchestra to be their second home in school.
