Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Music Program

Ella Castro

Name: Ella Castro
Major: Bachelor of Arts in Music Education, Emphasis: Violin
Hometown: Houston, Texas
Fact: I am bilingual.

I chose to come to Belhaven University because...I found the atmosphere to be very home-like. It was small, and therefore I received personalized instruction in areas in which I needed growth. I also received encouragement from the faculty and my friends to pursue what God has called me to do.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University instructor, Mr. Song.  He has encouraged me to bloom where I have been planted. He also has confirmed repeatedly that my calling is the classroom, and he has taken it upon himself to prepare me for it.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University, I am...A stronger musician. A prepared teacher. A stronger Christian. A happy student.
