“I hope to pursue future studies and a career in Music Therapy after completing my degree. I have been able to develop my relationships and my interpersonal skills with professors and fellow students through the community created by the Music Department. In the last three years, I have gained a much deeper knowledge of the power that music can play in the lives of individuals, which I am excited to bring to any of my future opportunities.”

“I chose to live at Grebel because of the Music Living-Learning Community, and it turns out I hit the jackpot! Arriving from Indonesia, I was moved by how friendly and helpful people at Grebel were. I wasn’t great at speaking English, but the open doors and fill the table tradition really helped. My friends and parents said that they can feel the family and community atmosphere here too!”
