"The feedback that you get at [E-town] is so personalized; it's easier to get better at what you want to become because you get so much attention." -- Emily Targnoski
Music Education major Emily Targonski was impacted from her first audition day by the energy and enthusiasm of students and faculty at Elizabethtown College. She remembered, "You got to see how much everyone cared about the music department and how everyone was passionate about the department."
She said there seems to be a special magic about the music department and the general campus climate at Elizabethtown College.
"There must be something in the air–it's every single person, you walk to class and you see three people that you've never seen before and they all say hi, or how are you. I think the relationships between the professors and students and how dedicated the professors are makes the students also want to create the same atmosphere," she said.
Emily's career path and identity has been formed from the personal relationships she has with her professors. She describes her experience with her private teacher as a "relatable" experience that has inspired her to pursue excellence in piano performance.
"You see how dedicated the professors are and how passionate they are about their area. The feedback that you get at the school is so personalized; it's easier to get better at what you want to become because you get so much attention," she said.
