Unmatched Courses

"At West Georgia, you get so many opportunities to shine. I can’t name many people who as undergraduate music majors received the chance to have a world premiere by an ensemble. Professors like Dr. Cale Self and Dr. Kevin Hibbard have helped me refine my craft and find my own voice through my writing.”

– Katahj Copley '21, Composer
