What is your favorite thing about our school of music?
My favorite thing about the School of Music is that there are endless opportunities for anyone who is willing to reach out and grab them. Students get to step up and lead organizations, play in student-lead ensembles, compete for scholarships, and can network to get professional experiences

What is a life lesson that you've learned through music at CMU?
My time at CMU has taught me how important it is to take hold of every experience that is presented to you. I've never looked back and thought, "Remember that night I got enough sleep?" But I have several memories of watch amazing guest artists in concert, having break-throughs in the practice room, and learning from some of the best professors in the field. Even if the benefits are not apparent right now, doing everything you can do better yourself during your time at CMU is so worth it in the end.
