Miranda Kelley, Instrumental Music Education

“I came to Minnesota State University, Mankato because the music program here is so forward-thinking. It really prepares you for becoming a music educator in the present and makes you think about the future of music and education.

I am getting so much from my time here. I have one-on-one meetings with professors when I need help with decisions or planning my future. I am the tuba section leader of the Maverick 'Machine' Athletic Bands so I am also developing leadership and communication skills. Every day in my classes I can tell that I'm learning and growing to become the music educator I was meant to be.”
