Assignment 0: Corey Atkins

My name is Corey Atkins and I am a senior in Arts and Sciences majoring in Biological Sciences (pre-med) and minoring in Business.  I was just added off the waitlist so I’m excited to be one of the lucky ones to get into this class. I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA but I spent 3 years living in Barbados, my dad’s native country.  My background in music begins with piano lessons from 3 until I was about 12 when I joined my middle school’s percussion section in the school band where I played various percussion instruments for 3 years.  Once I got to high school I got away from playing instruments due to my focus being football.  Despite no longer playing, just listening to music has always been one of my favorite things to do.  During my time at Cornell, Ive always wanted to venture back into playing music again because I am no longer playing ball but as many of you know free time at Cornell is rare.  I’ve decided to take this class because I’m interested in the production/editing/mastering that goes into making the finished pieces we here all the time, and to reactive the creative side of me.  Being part of a school band and an ensemble like percussion, I’ve always had to work with others to make a complete sound so I am very open to collaboration.
