"Music is something I always feel comfortable in. I believe it is beneficial for society because it provides people with a purpose, and brings them into a community. You can freely express yourself in a safe environment. I would recommend anyone coming into the Music program complete work early. Starting homework and projects early gives you much more time, and takes away an abundance of stress that you will have near the end of the semester." - Blake Davenport
