“The music department at Faulkner is a close-knit group. I knew each of my professors personally, and being with the other music majors was like being part of a family: everyone helped each other to succeed. Studying at Faulkner gave me the knowledge and experience I needed to teach, direct ensembles, perform on my instrument, and compose and arrange music in a professional environment.”
