  "Life is something like a trumpet. If you don't put anything in, you won't get anything out."

Cory Dalton
Cory Dalton


Cory Dalton is a senior music education major.  He plans to perform his senior recital this April and complete his student teaching in the fall.  Upon graduation, he hopes to be a high school band director.  Cory feels he has learned a lot since his first year at UTC.  He feels he is a much more confident and technically proficient performer.  He also realizes the immense amount of work it takes to gain the skills necessary to be a band director.  Cory gives a lot to the Music Department at UTC.  He is the head of the student stage crew and has been part of the student staff for marching band.  He is the go-to person for any performance or equipment needs!
