Today we feature Antonietta DiDonato, an incoming Music Education major who plans on adding a Music Performance major to her studies. Antonietta is from New Egypt, NJ (Ocean County), and although neither of her parents went to college, she is “excited to follow in [her] older sister’s footsteps.”

“In high school, I was the drum major of our school’s marching band, in addition to being a member of the South Jersey Regional and All-State bands; I will be continuing my musical career at Rowan.”

How and why did you choose your major?

“I chose my major because I have always looked up to the music educators in my life. I want to give my students a positive outlet and be the educator that makes the difference.”

What is something you’re looking forward to next year at Rowan?

“Next year, I’m looking forward to being involved with new ensembles, learning more music theory, and of course, making new friends.”

Why did you choose Rowan?

“I chose Rowan because I felt like everyone I spoke to was very genuine, helpful, and wanted the best for their students. Rowan University also supported my plans for a double major, which will be advantageous to my future career.”
