Studying music at Kean University allowed me to learn more about myself as a person and musician. It also gave me a sense of community. I never felt alone in our music department because of how supportive our students and professors are. I aspire to be a choral conductor and our choir director here at Kean allowed me to conduct our choir, along with an orchestra full of professionals for our Spring concert."
