My name is Cheyanne Hwang, and I am a music minor.  I also golf, dance, and participate in several BSU activities. Since I was young, I played the piano and flute: this made me think to pursue music as my minor. I balance my love of music with playing on the golf team, choreographing for the Dance Ensemble, and hosting prospective students through the BSU club. Another thing that I add to my busy pile is that while I'm minoring in music, I am also taking philosophy as my major. This may seem a bit too much for a small person like me, but I have fun.

When I took Music Technology with Chris Watts, I enjoyed learning a new way to play with music. Another music class that I especially enjoyed was David Henderson’s Musics of the World: it was fascinating to learn about other countries' cultures. Taking these classes made me experience new aspects of music and culture. Singing in the University Chorus ensemble helped me learned how to sing in a healthy way and improved my music-reading skills. Overall, I think I made the right choice in taking music as my minor. I anticipate that my St. Lawrence experiences will enrich my life for years to come.
