Name: Jeremiah Mahoney
Major: Music Composition
Hometown: Beekman, N.Y.
What’s your instrument of choice and why?
The harmonica because no one else can play it and people think that’s the most interesting instrument I can play.
What are you involved with musically?
I’m in Male Call, I’m the Musical Director of the Miami Theatre Players’ show Wild Party, I’m in the Jazz Ensemble, the Concert Choir and the Conert Band.
Sonny Boy Williamson III, Camille Saint Saens and Andrew Bird.
A lot of the music from “Wild Party,” jazz, swing, Duke Ellington, Count asie, Ravel and a lot of folk stuff in general.
I want to teach music and be a semi-successful classical composer.
Any advice for aspiring musicians?
Play an instrument that no one else knows how to play.
