I currently play in the Symphony band, Varsity band, Steel pan ensemble, Saxophone quartet, Jazz band, Dixie combo, Modern combo, while taking lessons in both piano and saxophone and composing for multiple ensembles. The wide array of opportunities offered by Western's music department has allowed me to expand my versatility, while still giving me the expertise required to play my instruments beyond undergraduate, and to direct a musical ensemble wherever I end up.
In addition to musical performance/study, I am finishing my second major in Psychology this year, and have been a Western Ambassador for two years. I have also presented research done with the music department at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research in April 2014. All of this, while still being an Honors student.
There's no other place where I would have had opportunities like these.
