Erin Paton

Student Voice: Erin Paton

February 17, 2011

Hello friends!

My name is Erin Paton and I am currently a freshman studying music education and jazz studies here at CU Boulder. I play saxophone and love to compose – it’s how I “roll,” so to speak. Apart from that, I am also an entrepreneur. Over the past summer, while talking with my brother who is also in the music business, I thought of an idea that would send me off on an entrepreneurial adventure – the Tūturu Jazz Orchestra.
