  • Inside the Department
July 25, 2022
The ear is a musician's foremost tool, and I credit the Department of Music for honing mine. Classes expanded my ear in new directions — first hearing harmonically, then structurally, then texturally, then sociologically. Beyond classes, I had opportunities to grow in musicianship such as taking one-on-one lessons with several conducting faculty, conducting the Chamber Chorale while touring internationally, and interviewing world-renowned conductors for my senior thesis. I am deeply grateful for my music education that intertwined ear and intellect.
