"Part of my role is helping students transition from the classroom to the conference room, from college to career. It's an intense progression of small steps leading to large outcomes, and it elicits emotions ranging from elation to dread. I try to show broad options while balancing expectations with reality."

"The reason why I think music business/management programs are growing all across the country is because I think that young people get it. They know that they can actually have some form of ownership in the growth, in the development of the new music industry. They understand music, but they don't want to get ripped off, and they don't have to deal with those music companies. They think, I can do something else on my own, and I need to know how to protect myself within that whole framework of the new music business."

"I teach computer applications in the music industry, web design and management, web development for e-business, and a few others. It's about developing ways of getting your information out there. Having those technology skills will allow you to build your business, whether it's yourself, if you're a solo artist, or you're working for a company that's promoting artists. It also teaches attention to detail and aesthetics. It's a different generation. You need to have those skills now."

"I teach Legal Aspects and Advanced Contract Negotiation, and I just try to break it down into plain English so that students understand what I'm talking about. And I draw a lot of diagrams. When they get a contract and are skimming through it, I want them to know when they need to talk to an attorney. I don't want them to feel like, 'I took Legal Aspects; I don't need a lawyer.' I want them to have enough knowledge to know when something doesn't feel right, and I want them to be able to have a more informed conversation with their attorney."

"I would love every student inside of Berklee to understand that your music is a part of your business portfolio. You need to learn something about business. You can't leave your careers in the hands of another individual. You've got to have an active and immediate role in understanding the face and future of what you're trying to do. And that's what business teaches you."
