Mountain Town Music has enhanced my musical and professional skills beyond measure. Through participation in scholarship-funded music programs in my early teens, I was provided with outstanding music instruction and countless opportunities to perform on stages with professional staff and production. The skills I gained through those experiences have enabled me to pursue a career in music and perform on stages of all sizes – most recently the American Idol stage. I will be forever grateful for the performance opportunities and learning experiences provided to me by my Mountain Town Music family. I would not be where I am without them.
