Three years ago, I was sitting at the kitchen table, discussing college options with my parents. The previous year, I had decided that I wanted to study music composition, but I did not know how I wanted to obtain that degree. I was looking at two schools: Wheaton College and a state school about an hour and a half away from home. Both educations would challenge me as a composer. In different ways, both educations would confront me in my spiritual walk. Both educations would compel my complete dedication to music.
