Happy New Year everyone! Welcome to the spring semester! We are in the third week already, and classes have taken full swing. This semester, I am busy not only with classes, but every weekend, I am rehearsing and performing with world class indoor percussion ensemble, United Percussion! Currently, I am playing synthesizer for their 2014 production, Fearless, and I am more than excited to be a part of it. I'm hoping to take what I learn from United into what I plan to do for my senior thesis next year, as well as for my other future endeavors in music, art, and performance.
This spring, I am taking one sound recording class, three art classes, and a thesis prep class. I have finished most of my music requirements, so now, I am working through classes for my secondary concentration and possible minor for visual arts. As for the thesis prep class, my fellow students and I are preparing for the writing and processes that we will have to go through for our senior projects.
In addition to classes, I am also taking part in Stevens LEADS program for Advancing Leaders. I attended the first class last night, and we received an overview of what we will be doing for the 8-week program. Each of us will also be putting together a personal project that will strengthen our connections to the community.
Three weeks into the semester, and I am enjoying everything that has been happening.
