School Trip to Eastern Europe

Hello all,

Thank you for taking the time to check out my gofundme page. And THANK YOU in advance for helping fund my trip. As you may have noticed, I am currently fundraising for an educational trip to Eastern Europe that is scheduled for May 9-24, 2015. This truly is the opportunity of a lifetime.

Dr. Johnathan Vest has scheduled professional development workshops for several of my peers in the music education program here at UTM and I at both the Orff and Kodaly institutes. These institutes are the birthplaces of two of the most well-known and used teaching philosophies in music education. Having these workshops under my belt will help me, my future students, and my career in way that I cannot even imagine. I will also be performing with the University of Tennessee at Martin, Alumni Choir, under the direction of Dr. Mark Simmons.

We will be visiting Vienna, Salzburg, Budapest, and Prague.

In addition to your support, I will be funding this trip through scholarships offered through the university and working part time as I have done through my entire undergraduate experience.

If you would like more information about this trip, what I am doing at UTM, or what I plan to do professionally, please feel free to contact me. I would love to share with you specifically how your contribution helped me.
