There are not many seniors that are intent on attending college in a foreign country … but Emma is one of them. In fact, she has her heart set on attending the Leeds College of Music, in Leeds, England, for a degree in music production.
Does she play an instrument? Hmmm… the question is, “How many”? Emma plays the drums, piano, guitar, ukulele, base clarinet, clarinet, bassoon and oboe. And if that’s not enough, she is learning to play the cello!
What does she do with all of that musical knowledge? To start, she performs in volunteer jazz gigs around town as well as volunteering with “A Positive Note” – a music program at the conservatory that is designed for children with disabilities.
In addition, Emma is working on the release of an “Extended Playlist” (an EP is like a mini album) and she even designed the cover. Oh yes – she’s an artist too!
Besides her love for music and art, Emma also enjoys writing fictional short stories, collecting Converse shoes and hanging out with her rescue dog. And what would a music lover name her dog? “Melody” of course!
At her high school, Emma is in the National Honor Society and International Baccalaureate Leadership, and is hoping to go to Greece with her family after her graduation from Rampart next spring.
