Attending the Crane School of Music was meant to set Brittany Sager on a path to incorporate her hobby of music into a career. This plan quickly ended and she left the school after only one semester.
Brittany Sager is a 19 year old student at the University at Buffalo. She has a passion for music and has been playing the drums since the fourth grade. After high school Brittany planned on broadening her passion by taking music education in college. She took one semester at the school before she realized that her passion for playing the drums did not carry over to teaching others how to play.
Once Brittany left the music school she had to plan out what path she was going to take to continue her academic career. In her home town of Syracuse, New York, Brittany was able to watch the UB Field Band perform at the Syracuse University Carrier Dome. After watching the Field Band she began to research the University at Buffalo and liked what she found. Her back-up major has always been English since she enjoyed creative writing. UB offered a strong English program and also provided Brittany with the opportunity to join UB Field Band.
Currently Brittany is an Intended English major and is adapting well to her new school. She plays drums in the UB Field Band and has high hopes to earn an English degree at UB and use it to become a tech writer.
