Music Brace
"ECU is not too big or too small for students to be known by the music faculty. Private lessons, class work and performances tie the students together as a family. We could study/practice/work together. The Music Department was fun, whether it was band or choir. Everyone helped one another. Quality teachers helped our music education so much." -- Rozzie, Adjunct and former Grad, Instrumental and Vocal Teacher Education - Trumpet
