  • Alumni Testimonial

    Sharon Dalton was incredibly important to my education and development. She helped me discover how creative I could be and unlock a lot of skills that I have in melody and aural music theory. I've applied so many things Sharon taught me during my everyday songwriting that I should probably list her as a songwriter on some of my catalogue. Sharon made playing and learning music fun.”

    Kenny Fleetwood: musician, recording artist, songrwriter - Nashville, TN

  • Alumni Testimonial

    The professors there during my tenure were exemplary. They were able to balance the art and craft present in all the creative arts and diffuse that into interesting, and incredibly useful lessons that I still use today. Sharon Dalton helped me perfect my skills and improve my voice in ways I never imagined. I was able to theoretically and practically use my talents and for that I am forever grateful. ”
