Nic Chuaqui ’12 ~ Composition and Voice Instruction

The faculty of the Dartmouth Music Department give students a great amount of personal attention and provide them with opportunities to pursue their unique interests; as a student, I was able to take on independent studies in theory and composition, gain valuable teaching experience through TAships, organize a festival, and have my compositions performed. Also, the liberal arts nature of Dartmouth's course of study gave me enough time to be able to join the Dartmouth Aires, and, as Musical Director, lead the group to a 2nd-place finish on NBC's The Sing-Off during my senior year. I am currently pursuing composition, in addition to teaching voice at a local middle school, working as an accompanist, and singing professionally in a well- respected choir in my city. I am well prepared for these diverse activities because of the opportunities to grow and learn I had as a music major at Dartmouth.
