Next year, I will be attending East Carolina University to major in music education. My plan had been to become a high school band director, but I have recently began considering focusing my attention on elementary school music. It is in the back of my mind that I would love to teach at UP someday. UP gave me the headstart on my future in music. I would soo love to go back someday and inspire kids in the same way that I was inspired. If you're considering sending your child to UP, if they get even a fraction of the experience that I did, it will be well worth it.
