Jared Wallace

Honours Bachelor of Music
Thunder Bay, ON

I chose to pursue music in University, as music has always been a huge part of my life. After doing weeks of research on prospective universities, I realized the right one was right under my nose all along. Lakehead offers a very friendly and welcoming music program with quality and incredibly dedicated instructors. Small class sizes in music allow you to have one-on-one interactions with your professors. Every single instructor is willing to help and push you to succeed in whatever way possible for you.

As a graduating music student, I have had many wonderful experiences studying at Lakehead, from playing in the many ensembles, performing my final recital, and especially the regular socials between the music students and faculty. One of my highlights would be playing section trumpet with the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra in “Carmina Burana” with my colleagues singing in the choir behind me. The music program is a close and tight knit family, with everybody knowing everybody, and often spending time outside of school together. If you are looking for a place to grow and prosper, Lakehead is the place to be. I will miss Lakehead, and have never once regretted my decision to attend there.
