I have a few goals that I would like to accomplish while I am studying here at East Tennessee State University. One being that of course I would like to do well in my classes. Being a major in Bluegrass, Old-Time and Country Music Studies, there is always a goal that I have musically. Right now my goal is to audition to be a member of the ETSU Bluegrass Pride Band. While I am in bands here at ETSU the ETSU Bluegrass Pride Band, I feel, would be a great experience that would really push me towards being a better musician and I hope that I will be able to accomplish that goal. Another goal I have is to prepare myself now as much as I can for a career after school. If I start learning as much as possible I should be able to transition smoothly into a career.
