What our students say

"I'm always amazed at the investment each professor puts into each student. They truly care about me, not only as a student, but an individual. They care about my spiritual growth to the same degree as my musical growth and for that I am forever thankful. "

Michelle Cantrell '15

"Music business professor, Jim Foglesong, taught me much - mostly from his actions. In spite of his enormous success in the music business, he was so kind to everyone, took time to get to know me and others, and even attended my softball games.  Today I follow some of his basic lessons: be on time, be dependable, work hard.  They havent failed me thus far."
