What to expect as a new student
-I enjoy the diversity in music throughout the different ensembles at the UWS campus.
-The personal one-on-one time with the professors in classroom and lesson settings
-The people, the abilities of the faculty in teaching and in performance of music
-The teacher/student ratio here is invaluably nurturing for undergraduate students. We are NOT numbers.
-The amazing amount of talent that surrounds me, and the faculty that are so warm and welcoming.
-Schedule everything. Go to class. Practice, practice, practice.
-Be sure to designate specific time in your schedule for practice.
-If you have 30 minutes, go to the practice room. More importantly, stay on track with your classes…if you are having problems, talk to the faculty.
-I put it into my schedule every day.
-Practice in increments, one hour at a time, a few times a day.
-I pretend that practicing is a class and try to schedule at least two hours a day.
-I study in my open time slots and in the evenings in a quiet space where I cannot be disturbed, in order that I can fully delve into my studies.
-I usually do my homework after I'm done practicing.
-I study content every night.
-I set aside time at home depending on how much I need to study.
-Performing for schools in Brazil.
-The final concert in China.
-The China tour. Every part about it was growth and experience that I'll take with me forever.
-Most percussion ensemble performances have been really memorable.
-The 2008 Symphonic Band concert with all Colombian music.
-My first recital class performance.
-I perform with seven bands in the Twin Ports area.
-My job is a Sunday organist.
-Sing at weddings
-Direct a small choir
