Tim Dow, a junior in the Florida College music program, has many awards at a young age.  In 2014, he......
"The life of the arts, far from being an interruption, a distraction in the life of a nation, is close to the center of a nation's purpose."
  -John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the United States (1917-1963)

"When I packed my car to come to Florida College, I didn't bother to pack my trumpet.  Four years in marching band practicing on hot asphalt in the Georgia summers was enough time spent playing.  Opening week at FC, Mr. Rainwater talked to me about playing in Wind Ensemble.  I told him that I had put in my time but his "gentle persuasion" (and a helpful scholarship) convinced me to play some more.  And, I'm so glad I did.  Although music is not my major, I've had so much fun in the King building and made so many friends.  My only regret was not bringing my trumpet down in my very packed car."

" I'm so happy that I decided to become a Vocal Major in the FC music department.  Eventually, I will go on to tell how wonderful Dr. Bassett and Mr. Moore are and how my life has been enriched by knowing them and all the music faculty."

Diana Romo ('17)
Rome, Georgia

"Coming to Florida College as a Business Major, I thought my cello days were in the past.  But, after finding out that I had played cello all through high-school, Dr. Bassett asked me to join the String Ensemble.  The extra scholarship money helped but, after playing all four years, I believe I would have done so for free.  I had so much fun!  It was a great break from my business classes and it reminded me of my love for music.  We were small, but we were dedicated and passionate.  I went on tour with the chorus, made so many friends from the music department and (did I mention) had so much fun!"

"I came to Florida College with the goal of stayine just two years, get my AA, take some music classes and then transfer to a college in Pennsylvania where I would get a degree in Music Therapy.  

Little did I know that, five years later, I would be helping teaching music in Tampa, helping with the FC Friends and be  married to the most wonderful lady I know - whom I met at Florida College.

My time here has been wonderful  Such opportunities, a faculty  know and care about you so much and an enviroment that strenghthend my walk with God.  When I've toured with "Friends", I never had a problem encouraging everyone I met to go to F.C."

"Florida College faculty and staff are, in essence, servants. We seek to facilitate spiritual, mental, social, an academic growth in the lives of students. For music students in particular, the educational journey in certain ways mimics the Christian life-- self-discipline, humble acceptance of instructionm and a constant striving for the good are some of the character traits that successful music students learn to embody. ALong with the rest of the FLorida College faculty and staff, I hope to inspire students to do everything to the glory of God and to seekHim first in their lives.
