STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

Music Education, Waddy, KY "Being at MSU in the Vocal Music Education Program has been quite an experience. I joined Concert Choir and Chamber Singers my first semester here at MSU and later Jazz Vocal Ensemble. With each group I have been introduced to many different genres and styles or music that I'd never heard or been apart of...Coming to MSU has taught me many things and given me chances to experience what teachers go through and how they can conquer whatever they put their mind to."
