I’ve gained so much confidence and so many skills here, along with learning tons more about myself as a performer and a person than I did in my five years of college. Becoming a part of the cast at The Music Man may or may not be right for you, but I will leave you with this: This place has become a second home to me, and my hope for you, should you decide to embark on the adventure that is working at The Music Man, is that you find a home here as well, and take pride in working, singing, playing, and laughing with the nicest kids in town!
