My name is Kelsey Wardlaw and I am a Sophomore music and Spanish double major form Charlotte, North Carolina. I have been playing the flute since I was 12 years old and since then, I have learned to play the piano, piccolo, and the clarinet. I was in marching band all four years of high school and I competed in multiple competitions and MPA performances. I am very excited for this class because I have been learning about white composers and white performers since I began to be a musician. So I am extremely eager to learn about my own people’s accomplishments in the music world.
