Advice for Current Students: Fall in love with the process of becoming the best version of yourself. Hartt is an amazing resource for broadening your musical sensibilities, and it would be an egregious offense to not do everything in your power to take advantage of it while you can. There is simply too much to see, hear, and practice at Hartt . . . soak up as much of it as you can!

Anything else you want to add regarding your current life? It certainly has been a journey for me. Just when I thought I missed, or had a great opportunity slip away from me . . . another one was always around the corner waiting for me. I just had to be prepared to take it, and not afraid to just go for it.
