Since his graduation from Gardner-Webb University, trumpeter Ty Sheets (’13) has performed on a cruise ship, placed in a national competition, played at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., and completed his master’s degree on a full graduate assistantship. He credits his successes to the teaching and mentoring of Tim Hudson, Gardner-Webb assistant professor of music. “He taught me to start thinking of myself as a professional musician, even when I was only in my second year of music school,” Sheets reflected.
