About Me

 

Firstly I will just add in my new site: http://afprizeman.multiply.com/

Well let’s see:

My name is Andrea, though you can call me Drey (It really doesn’t matter though). I am 20 years old, with my birthday being on February 1st. I am originally from Regina, Saskatchewan but my family moved to Olds, Alberta in 1999. I now classify both places as my ‘home’ but I draw more towards Olds, to be honest.

My family consists of 4 people, my parents, my older brother and myself. I have two pets; my bordercollie dalmation cross Hughie, who lives with my parents, and my furry little hamster Buddy, who lives with me and my roommate. My family is very much into volunteer work, my father and I especially. My parents are both Rotarians and I hope to become one some day. I have tried to start a Rotaract club in Regina, but no Rotary clubs seem to have any interest. My father has been involved with Scouts Canada as a leader and board member for roughly 20 years; I have been involved in Scouts Canada as a youth and a leader for 14 years.

I am currently in my fourth year at the University of Regina, that’s right fourth. That being said I am currently between two degrees right now. I began my life at the U of R in the Bachelor of Music Education program and I have gone as far as is possible for myself in that program. I am taking this school year (2008-2009) to boost my GPA as much as I can so that I will be able to (hopefully) transfer into the Arts Education program next year. Currently I have a major in music and a minor in drama education.

Musically, I am well versed (so to speak). I began my musical life learning piano when I was four. I began ‘band’ instruments when I was seven, starting with trumpet. I moved on to trombone at the age of 9 and tenor saxophone at age 10. I began my first three instruments all while I was in the Regina Police Junior Band. When I moved to Olds Alberta I was given many opportunities due to the above average band program in the schools, especially in the high school. While in high school, I was given the oppotunity to learn flute, oboe and euphonium. I actually became first chair euphonium in the Red Deer Royals for a year (after that I stopped being a member due to being in grade 12). In my grade 12 year, and other years of my high school career, I was one of the top trumpet players (for high school obviously) in my school district. Over the past few years in University I have been able to learn a number of other instruments including, clarinet, tuba, and the many percussion instruments. Currently I own a professional keyboard, a trumpet, a trombone and a tenor saxophone. Though my trumpet, unfortunetely, doesn’t work I love it all the same. I have studied under a number of great people including: Joe Harry (of Regina), Barry Valeau (of Alberta), Neil Corlett (of Red Deer College), Brent Ghiligione (of the University of Regina) , Dick Raum (of the University of Regina), Yvonne Redant (of Regina) and John Griffiths (of the University of Regina)

There is a lot I could say, but I do believe I will leave it at that. Any questions, feel free to ask. 🙂

 

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.

How exciting to have you blog with our class!! We have just read your “About Me” page and the students were just as impressed as I was with all of your accomplishments. I am hoping that each one of them will be able to post a comment to you on your blog some time today. We are still fairly new to blogging however we make up for it with our enthusiasm. The students blog on a 5 day rotation. While that group of students write in their blogs, the other students write in their journals. I leave the blogs open for them to post anything they want and then occasionally ask them to post something specific. Let me know if you are interested in keeping in touch, if you need my email address, or anything else.
Have a great Thursday!!
