 Student of the Month
Timothy Clark


Timothy Clark is the Vice President and Warden for Phi Mu Alpha, a music fraternity at UTC. He is planning to perform his degree recital in the fall and student teach in the spring. He is currently working on the cornet solo Columbine by H.A. VanderCook. VanderCook is an under-recognized composer of cornet solos. Arban and Clarke may be the most well-known cornet solo composers, but VanderCook wrote many as well. Tim is also a member of the UTC Jazz Band and Brass Quintet. And, he got married over the summer!  We decided to take his photo in the rare but beautiful snow that visited us recently.
