  • What did you value most about your graduate experience in the Hayes School of Music? I appreciated the amount of hands-on experience I was able to have through being the graduate assistant to the Marching band and the director of the Basketball and Concert band. Most important, I still value to this day my relationships with the wonderful faculty of the School of Music who are so supportive of their students and enthusiastic about what they do.
