Abby Beach is a music education major at the University of South Dakota. Choosing to attend USD was an easy choice for her due to the strong music program and the great faculty. Dr. David Holdhusen is one of Beach’s favorite faculty members. She has taken a few classes from him and is also in the Chamber Singers, which he directs. Many of the faculty at USD have won awards, which Beach said shows students they are learning from some of the best in the field and will be prepared to begin their careers upon graduation.
