Major: Music Theory/Composition, Percussion Applied Emph.
Grad Year: 2015
Why attend MU: Manchester has always had a home touch to it. My Home town was about the size of Manchester. I knew when I first came on campus, that this was my home. The Music Department is amazing. The Professors take the time out of their day to see how you are as a student, and as a friend.
Favorite thing: The opportunities that students at MU have are hard to beat. A student gets to understand their professors in a different way than other Universities can. Students also are able to do things here that they might not have been able to do in other schools, like going overseas to study.
Never expected: I never thought in my entire life that I would be able to read music. Before I came to Manchester, I could only read rhythms [since I was mostly a drum set and snare player to start with]. By the end of my first semester as a freshmen, I was able to read music AND play piano!
