Year: Junior

Major: Music Composition

Why did you come to Wheaton? I came to Wheaton from Hong Kong to study at the Conservatory of Music knowing little to nothing about Wheaton and what it would mean to me in terms of growth, teaching, mentoring opportunities, and friendships in the years to come.

Favorite Wheaton class or professor and why: My favorite professor is Dr. Sommerville. I've had him for three years in a row now and since most of my film music is set for orchestra, I usually send him either cues or orchestrations for comments. Even though it's not related to Dr. Sommerville's work, he gives me very practical pointers and highlight the good parts. It's a constant joy learning from him.
