One of the many things living in LA this summer has taught me is the value of being in the right place at the right time. While living and working here, I’ve been exposed to both working professionals and other students with whom I’ve begun to create professional relationships. I’ve met more people directly involved in the creative side of the music industry in the past six weeks than the last six years. I’ve met talented musicians, chart-topping producers, YouTube celebrities, accomplished sound engineers, and a slew of other well-connected professionals. I’ve connected with students from both Elon and other schools around the country, and can easily see many of these newly forged friendships evolving into invaluable relationships down the road. Not to mention the fantastic experience I’m getting working at a professional recording studio.
