Graduate Student Blazes Path to Success

Blaise Delfino is a busy man. If you’re lucky enough to run into him on ESU’s campus, he’ll either be studying for a speech-language pathology exam, writing a song, or working on his latest invention. There is a lot going on in the young professional’s life, and he is managing to make it work flawlessly.

At a young age, Delfino was immersed in the musical arts. His father taught him how to play the drums at five years old. As he got older, Delfino intensely practiced his instruments, discovering new ones along the way. Eventually, he learned how to play the saxophone and guitar. His abundant knowledge of music and instrumental skills helped him to become a self-taught pianist and singer/songwriter. Though music was a crucial part in his life, he gravitated toward other hobbies.
