What is your instrument of choice? Why?
Bass. I like rhythm a lot. My friend in middle school showed me his bass guitar, I really liked it. Ever since then it was my favorite thing to do.
Who are you currently listening to?
A lot of McCoy Tyner and Paul Jackson.
Who are your main influences?
Paul Jackson. Sting. Hadrien Feraud.
What do you do with music on/off-campus?
My group, The Mahopac Chord, is playing at Rock Against Racism at 4 p.m. I play with my friends back home a lot but The Mahopac Chord has been my main outlet. I did the Chamber Jazz Ensembles.
What will you do with your degree?
I try to not think about that question. I’d like to play the bass and live my life around that. If I could do anything with bass, it’d be performing original music. If I could pick one thing that would be my ultimate goal, but that’s such an unfeasible thing to happen.
