INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC/CLARINET-George will be using his scholarship to further his studies in music with Master Classes at University of Kansas Midwestern Music Camp this summer. He chose this music camp because of the great things about their professors and wanted a chance to get to talk to them and learn from them. It will assist in his artistic goals because it will not only help increase his own skill level in playing an instrument, but also directly influence his ability to inspire others and show them what art is about. He feels this will be a way to learn skills that are benefical to assist him when he is leading his school's marching band as the Drum Leader next year.
