"I'm so grateful that my professor pushed us to become proficient at all the instruments. That high expectation really benefited me as a teacher." -Micah Albrycht
Micah Albrycht came to Elizabethtown unsure of his major. He chose the College because of its liberal arts background and the small school environment.
"Choosing E-town was a strategic decision; I was able to do a lot of things and find my direction because of the small school environment," he said.
Once he chose to focus on music education it was the personalized attention and the high expectations of coursework that made him successful today.
"A lot of people say this, but it's really true in Elizabethtown: the personalized attention and the closeness of the student body creates a nurturing environment where the professors really care about you as a person. Professors were easy to talk to, there were open doors and at least for my education I found that to be very important and meaningful," he said.
Micah remembered that it was the high expectations of pedagogical and methods classes that gave him the skills that he needed to become a successful band director today.
"Now that I find myself teaching I draw from those classes and I'm so grateful that my professor really pushed us to become proficient at all the instruments. That high expectation really benefited me as a teacher," he said.
