On any given day you can find Ariel Breidenbaugh, 20, of Jarrettsville, practicing away in one of the practice rooms in the College of Fine Arts building. If you follow the sound of the clarinet, you’ll eventually find her.
After her first year at Towson, she’s done so much from marching to playing in the orchestra pit. And as she reflects on her first two semesters, she offers some advice to students who are thinking about going into music.
“If you really love what you do, there’s a place for you,” Breidenbaugh said. “If you’re willing to learn and become savy in what you’re learning, employers look for that. If you set up yourself as a valid candidate, it shouldn’t be too bad…Towson really prepares you, too.”
The clarinetists plans on going to a Master’s program after graduating from Towson University.
