Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello! I'm a current Stanford sophomore double-majoring in music and Asian American studies. My particular interests lie in the intersection between music+technology and the wonderful, under-appreciated field of ethnomusicology (with a focus on musics of the East/Southeast Asian and Asian diaspora musics).

A6723: A Cappella 101 in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
Like Pentatonix? Hamilton? So do we! We are Stanford O-Tone: one of Stanford's many and varied a cappella groups. Together we'll be learning how to harmonize, beatbox and blend—and finding out how to control vocal muscles you never knew you had voluntary control over. This workshop will focus on all the basic skills you need to sing a cappella with a group. Absolutely no experience required.
