Creating the Next Code Composers

I pitched this story for the Georgia Tech News site and was fortunate enough to be given a chance to write it. As a creative person who taught myself to code, I identified strongly with the subject: a computer program which teaches students how to code by making music. I even found a local success story and was able to interview her for the article and video.
