Erin Sternberg, '05 music and history
Sales representative, Hal Leonard Corporation, Milwaukee
I chose WLC for its emphasis on religion, its variety of majors and the size of the campus. I chose music as my major because although I had been playing piano for years, I wanted more in-depth instruction in both piano performance and general music.
The staff to student ratio makes it easy to get individual help. The professors are passionate about their music, both choral and instrumental. For a piano performance major, the fine arts facilities and Schwan Concert Hall can't be beat.
WLC gave me a solid background in fundamentals such as music repertoire, theory, composition, history, performance and pedagogy which have definitely aided when assisting music dealers and teachers in my current position as a sales representative at Hal Leonard Music Corporation.
