INTERESTS: Conducting and flute

Hello! My name is Lara and I am a music education major with a psychology minor here at UK. I specialize in flute, but I am also an avid conductor and am currently studying them both. I am a part of many programs here at the College of Fine Arts, including the UK Symphony Band, the Wildcat Marching Band, Pep Band, The National Association for Music Education (NAFME), and Sigma Alpha Iota. I have had the privilege to be one of the drum majors for the marching band here for a year, and I plan to return in the fall. A fun fact about me is that I love hiking and the outdoors!


One word: passion. I am very passionate about all things music that I do here at the University of Kentucky and being here has presented me with such unique and wonderful opportunities that I could have only dreamed of a few short years ago. I didn’t really know that UK was my home until my assistant band director told me to go give it a shot, and I immediately fell in love. I feel as though the college of fine arts has given so much to me, I should give it something in return. I think each student both in and out of Kentucky should have a change to even just tour this amazing school and meet some of the amazing faculty within it. I would absolutely love to help our future students and current students feel as if they have a home away from home, as I know I do.
