Claire Wride loves how music can be adaptive to people’s unique needs and how accessible it is. At the end of the [“Learning Through Service”] class, the students were asked to present their philosophy of service in a creative way. Wride chose to write a song.

Wride says she loves that the focus at BYU is how to become “instruments in the Lord’s hands.” She said that music brings the Spirit and she believes being a conduit to help others feel the Spirit is one of the biggest services someone can perform.
