Major/Intended Major: Music Education
ECU offered me everything I was looking for in a university- a large school with a small school feel, a football team and a marching band, and most importantly, an excellent School of Music with a wonderful faculty.
My scholarship has allowed me to focus on my schoolwork without needing to worry about paying for school or graduating with debt. I can devote my time to practicing and studying because I don't have to work to put myself through school.
I've been able to lead my section in the marching band and symphonic band. I'm also a member of CMENC, and am currently in a program where music majors mentor high school juniors and seniors considering majoring in music.
I want to teach General Music at a K-5 school. I would really like to work in an underprivileged school district where I could build and better the music program through grant writing, as well as my teaching.
Through Service-Learning opportunities I have been able to tutor at Belvoir Elementary School, provide music education through the Kid's Music program, and provide childcare at the Marine Corps Birthday Ball.
