Major: Music — Recording technology and music business
Year: Junior Hometown: Fond du Lac, Wis.
"My parents always told me to do what makes me happy. That’s how I ended up at UW Oshkosh, the only school in the state to offer a recording technology and music business degree.
"I jumped into my major classes right away, fine-tuning my classical guitar skills (which really helps my playing with my band “The Surreal Effect”) and learning the operational details of music production. I’ve discovered the “why” behind the sound with classes in music history and music theory, and I’ve got a new appreciation for how music is really made.
"UW Oshkosh is helping me build a stage for my career so that when I graduate, I can use my knowledge and my guitar to share my passion for music and show the world what I can do."
