Emmett Knox '09

I was overwhelmed by the talent of my cohort as a Dartmouth freshman. The intimacy of the music department was just what I needed to get a foothold in an unfamiliar place. While I found the music major cumbersome at times with its various requirements, it was a department that offered great access to really accomplished musicians and musicologists from a diverse set of fields. I'm now a professional musician, making a living doing what I love, and I certainly wouldn't be here without my many hours in the Hop basement.
