December 2017: Senior combines musical talent with desire to help others


Connor Dugosh

Major: Music Therapy

Hometown: Marietta, Georgia

Activities and accomplishments: Music Therapy Society, Wind Symphony, University Chorus, Jazz Band, Saxophone Quartet, Life Line Voices, studied abroad and performed with the Macon Symphony.

Why that major: “I have a passion for helping people, and I had spent all my middle and high school years working on my musical abilities. So, it seemed natural to combine the two. My primary instrument is saxophone, but I also play guitar, ukulele, percussion, piano, bagpipes and dulcimer as well.”

Internship: Planned and conducted music sessions for clients at the Star Center in Jackson, Tennessee.

Lesson learned: “One big thing I learned in my time here is that it’s OK to make mistakes and, often, we learn valuable lessons from them. School has never been easy for me, and there were times that I really struggled. I never let that stop me, though. Quitting my major or school as a whole never crossed my mind.”

Impact moment: Helping a disabled client prepare for a concert at the Life Enrichment Center in Milledgeville. “After he played his solo, the smile on his face and watching his eyes light up as the crowd cheered him showed me why the job I’m training for is so important. That moment will always stick out in my mind when I think about my time here.”

Future plans: Pass a certificate exam for music therapy, then someday combine music with pet therapy.
