Ashley Mogard: Deering, ND, BS in Music Education, Composite, senior

I am currently in my fourth year of pursuing my BS in Music Education, composite. Studying music here has probably been one of the best decisions I have made for myself in bettering my education for music. I came to Minot State because Minot is home to me and I love the small sense of community where everyone knows everyone. There is the sense of family that truly makes you feel welcome. I loved the location of Minot State because it was close to home for me which was important to have, especially in my first years here. Going to Minot State and being a part of the music program has definitely made me a more independent and strong person. Professors see and hear what you have to say and are there to guide you along the way. You are not a number; you are a person. This program has developed my ways of thinking about music and teaching music that will follow me through my teaching years.
