“I love that the Frost School of Music has helped me become a versatile musician. Their vision for a modern day string player gives us a major advantage in the current music world.”

Enjoy the freedom to explore a wide spectrum of styles, and build professional skills that will propel you forward.

“The Frost School has provided opportunities that I would not have received anywhere else. From Beethoven to Bossa Nova, I have performed with world-renowned musicians in the Frost Symphony Orchestra and the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra. I feel more prepared to enter the music industry because of the performing opportunities at Frost. Who wouldn't want to play with Gloria Estefan or Barry Manilow, or play a concert of video game music, or perform Mahler and Brahms, all within the same year?”
