Ever since Luben Daniel ’12 first came to Ithaca College as a music education major and clarinet player, his goal was to return to his home on the island of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands to teach music.
Now his aspiration is becoming a reality. Daniel will soon take over as band director at his former high school. He says the IC School of Music courses and the experience he gained with Ithaca’s concert and symphonic bands gave him the skills and confidence to dive into a teaching position after graduation.
“IC’s music education program transformed me into an all-around educator, flexible and capable enough to adapt and achieve success in any situation,” he says. “It was all worthwhile, hands-on prep for instructing, assessing, and managing students.”
