Meet Our Students

From the Lions Mouth
“Being in New York makes me feel like I'm at the center of the world and there is always something amazing going on - I've seen a board member on the Federal Reserve give a lecture about our current economic state, I've seen jazz greats Jimmy Heath and Bobby Sanabria give lectures for the Jazz Studies Department, I've been to the Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Natural History, and I've been to the Jazz Standard (a famous jazz club) twice, all in one year!”
