Study Abroad

Music students have the chance to study abroad in cities and countries with influential music communities, like New York and Los Angeles, and explore subjects like ethnomusicology and music technology.

Lydia is in charge of helping patrons with donations, and in charge of all the volunteer services hired and scheduled to work.

“I think the most fun part is seeing all of your hard work come to fruition.”
