One step closer to graduation

Ian | March 6th, 2012

Recently, I’ve been receiving tons of emails about graduating. Is this point already on its way?! I’m shocked that I’ll be purchasing another cap and gown for a May commencement. It feels like I bought my high school cap and gown only yesterday. Soon, I’ll be a WVU graduate with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education. While the sentiment is certainly bittersweet, I’m anxious to close a chapter of my life and start a new one with all of the knowledge with which WVU provided me.

Last weekend, I attended a regional National Association of Teachers of Singing competition in West Chester, PA. I’m proud to announce that a great number of WVU students represented our voice department with their talents. Many of our students made the semi-finals, and some went on to the finals round. Pleasingly, some of our students placed first or second within their respective divisions. Congratulations to them and all WVU students on their hard work! The way that we represented ourselves at this conference goes to show that WVU is a great place to study voice. During the conference, I had a moment where I said to the person next to me “Wow – we have some really great singers at WVU.” And it’s true. This is of course due in part to their work ethic and also to the fabulous voice teachers we have. Studying voice at WVU has been an honor, and I couldn’t be happier to sing among such talented singers and under the instruction of such knowledgeable professors.

Happy March, everyone. Spring is on its way!

Keepin’ it real,
