What does NAME think about the ASOTA experience?

“The connections made while participating in ASOTA have opened doors that I never thought would be an option for me. The professors create an environment that allows you to grow and succeed not only in your field of study, but also in life. Now, I teach others about the importance of music and performing while also performing in the 151st Army National Guard Band.” – John Calcotte, Music Education, 2019

"I now serve as a full-time worship leader and have had the opportunity to travel the world leading others in worship. I chose UM because the opportunity to travel on the weekends and actually lead worship while I was learning was unlike any other school I had visited. Had I not had my time at UM and in Voices of Mobile, I don’t think I would have been ready for the constant change touring brings." – Anna Sailors Pinkham, BS Worship Leadership | 2015
