Fondest memory:

“My favorite time of the school year was always Homecoming. Watching the University community parade around campus, dancing the night away at the Cadre party and feeling the blue and gray energy always made the weekend memorable.”

Selecting the U of M:

“I was looking to relocate from my native Nebraska to a much larger city out of state. Memphis’ population provided the boost in music opportunities I was seeking, while its School of Music offered the high level of training I wanted. I was impressed by the vast opportunities the Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music offered compared to other schools. The full-tuition scholarship I received from the department made it possible for me to leave my home state for school.”

Future of U of M:

“I often tell people that the University of Memphis School of Music is a hidden gem. It is an affordable program in a city of perfect size for a developing artist with enough opportunities to thrive, while not swallowing a young musician. It also has a staff hungry to prove the high quality of the University’s growing reputation. Especially in the Mid-South, the entire University of Memphis has the ability to be the voice of progressive academia that will benefit the entire region.”
