Frank Stroup, a junior from Lincoln, Neb., was inspired by his first trumpet teacher to go into music education, but he wanted to be sure to continue performing at the same time.
“I love playing,” Stroup, a music education major, said. “If I had (a teacher’s) certificate and can perform, it will be such a strong musical career.”
One of Stroup’s current professors said he has been able to find a good balance between performing and understanding the ways of an educator.
