Hi, my name is Kevin França; I am a 4th year student here at the University of Iowa, from Poughkeepsie, New York. I studied for two years at the University of Connecticut with Volkan before transferring to U of I. I am also known as “Mr. Guy who took this class”, since I have already worked with Volkan before. When I came here, there were some additional bass classes that I didn’t take before, such as: Audition Rep., Technique class, Bass Warm-up and Bass ensembles. I am a music education major, but I am still deciding what level I would like to teach. I will go on to get my Masters after I graduate, but I still have another year to decide. Overall I like the school here, but I am still adjusting to life out here in the Midwest.
