“Growing up, I always had a deep love for music and I felt like I had a knack for it. I learned piano and from there taught myself guitar. When I auditioned for the music program in college, however, I was told that despite having a natural talent, my lack of formal training was obvious.

Ultimately I would not end up purusing a music degree. But I always felt like if maybe I had been able to take lessons or even just meet and talk to some career musicians, maybe I would have been able to pursue a music career.

SCM will bring to students all across the region the opportunities that I never had.”
