"Trends continue to evolve with new generations and technologies. Meanwhile, there are some musical formats and formulas that have stood the test of time. In a conservative view, it is easy to dismiss them. However, seeking potential in the existing musical climate can be a creative and stimulating process. As a groove researcher I’ve cultivated many types of rhythms, groove, and sounds through my experience traveling globally. I’d like to share these experiences with our diverse group of students so we can all understand and enjoy this universal language of music."
"Most engineering and production techniques can be learned from books or from YouTube. However, I believe originality is rooted from real-life experience and through physical learnings in school. My goal is to support our diverse group of students from various cultural backgrounds as they develop their originality and become independent artists. There is opportunity for a lifetime of learning when it comes to music, and I feel that I am also a student. In the music scene today backed by our world of capitalism, immediate and tangible results are always in demand. Even in this climate, I’d like to make sure that we all remember why we fell in love with music in the first place. I’d like to teach how we can remain an objective listener, stay professional in the field, and continue to devote our love to music."
