My name is Abby VanLeer and I am currently pursuing a degree in Music Education at Marian University in Indianapolis, IN. I am currently a second semester sophomore double majoring in Music and Education. My primary instrument is clarinet, but I also play the tuba. I am involved in the Marian University Basketball Band, Marching Band, Honor Band, Jazz Band, and Clarinet Ensemble. I am a full time student and I dedicate myself to my music and education classes so that I may be able to educate future students about the importance of music in their lives. I enjoy music theory, and I tutor my peers in it often. Music has had a great impact on my life, and I hope to spike student interest so that they will find what music can do for them.
