Matt Mazur - Class of 2015
Hometown: Flower Mound, TX
Major: Music with a Business Emphasis
After graduating high school, I had placed music (specifically percussion) on the back burner as nothing more than a hobby and by the time I started at Western, I thought it would be too late to pick it back up. My freshman year, while registered as a history major, I decided to help out the percussion ensemble with a few of their pieces and was astounded by the dedication and one-on-one attention they gave to a student who was not even part of their program. Since then, I have been taking advantage of the small classes sizes offered by the music department and enjoying the positive atmosphere maintained by all of the faculty in Quigley. Among other things, Western has renewed my passion for music and given me another chance to develop a lifelong skill which would have otherwise been put to waste.
