Bachelor of Fine Arts, Music Theatre
Why I Chose Hartt
I chose The Hartt School because I truly believe it was the the place that I was suppose to train. Prior to college I had no true training in the "theatre", but something that Hartt did notice at my college audition was potential. And eventually my potential plus learning proper skills and technique, mixed with a heavy amount of passion turned into success. The teachers are very personal and true to each student's progress. The new HPAC facility is a jungle gym for an artist to develop his craft in. I am extremely thankful and proud of the training I received, and I feel prepared to make my stamp on the professional world of the theatre.
