Music Therapy Candidate and Founder of Manatee, Class of 2013
Today's professional musician needs to be flexible and open to a variety of musical endeavours and challenges. The University of Guelph's Music Program helped me develop and refine a broad range of artistic skills that enable me to work as a music educator, performer, producer, engineer, band-leader, composer, and therapist. Perhaps most importantly, the faculty and instructors at Guelph helped me cultivate an ideological approach that continues to guide my musical life and decisions. By offering courses in music history, philosophy, performance, and production, Guelph ensures its students have every opportunity to be passionate, well-rounded, and innovative musicians.
