When I was first hired by the College, I was in the process of getting ready to travel to Tanzania to work with a music education non-profit started by a friend. I researched some of the available courses at Brockport and thought it was something I would enjoy and be successful in. So few college music programs prepare their students to handle the administrative or business side of the arts, yet it's such an important skill set! As I've accumulated responsibilities in the music program, I realize that getting this degree was something I really needed to do.
